Project description

The Pirenne Consortium studies the Middle Ages across boundaries of disciplines and faculties. As a collaborative research lab and knowledge center, it focuses on cross-cultural research and on the dialogue between past and present. Through co-creation with partner institutions and the wider audience, it strives for an improved understanding of historical cultural diversity, for valorizing regional heritage and digitization.
