Resumo

A conservação do património da ciência e técnica (C&T) constitui um complexo desafio no domínio do património cultural. Existem várias razões que justificam esta situação, entre as quais as características específicas dos objectos da C&T: grande variedade de materiais, técnicas de construção e dimensões e a existência de mecanismos de funcionamento. Actualmente, os métodos de conservação utilizados são somente parcialmente adaptados às especificidades deste património e para ultrapassar este facto deve investir-se na investigação. Neste artigo identificam-se os principais desafios para a investigação da conservação do património da C&T que estão relacionados com i) o aumento do conhecimento dos materiais e da sua degradação; ii) a compreensão da função dos objectos; iii) a investigação e desenvolvimento de novas técnicas de conservação compatíveis com as suas características; e iv) a criação de ferramentas que auxiliem no processo de tomada decisão no sentido da definição e implementação de programas de conservação e de manutenção.
