Project Profuturo

Completed Projects – Project Profuturo Copán

(1999-2003)

In 1999, the Honduran Council of Science and Technology (COHCIT) contracted the Copan Association to carry out the Pre-Hispanic legacy component of the PROFUTURO project. With World Bank financing, the Copan Association completed four main components:

1. Science: Investigate the environment and evolution of the Copán Valley for the last 4,000 years

2. Education: Impart current information about the Maya to the townspeople and visitors via interactive exhibits (link to Casa K’inich)

3. Integration: Connect the human population of the Copán Valley with regional cultural resources

4. Training: Train Honduran scientists and technicians in all program areas
