Inventing Europe

Bringing historians and museums closer together

main image

The Inventing Europe online platform is a pioneering collaboration between historians and cultural heritage institutions across Europe.

The platform explores the history of technology in Europe using curated exhibitions and tours. These virtual journeys are based on the objects and images of the partner heritage institutions and are enriched with relevant materials from Europeana collections through the Europeana API.

The exhibitions group together tours around a specific technology theme, such as Daily Lives, Media & Communications, Knowledge Societies, Infrastructure, Globalisation & Governance. Every tour comprises a collection of four to six stories, each outlining an aspect of the history of technology in Europe.

Besides the exhibitions, curators from the partner institutions and other experts are invited to expand the contextual stories and contribute their perspectives in the form of new guest-curated tours.
