About us

The Centre virtuel de la connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE) was a Luxembourg public institution set up in 2002 to research the history of the European integration process. The centre was based at the Château de Sanem in southern Luxembourg. On 1 July 2016, the CVCE was integrated into the University of Luxembourg, and the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) has taken on the task of maintaining and developing the CVCE.eu website.

The content is arranged into multimedia collections, each available in several languages at CVCE.eu and comprising an extensive range of multilingual sources (texts, images, audio and video footage, etc.). With more than 2 million documents consulted each year, the thematic collections and the oral history programme — featuring more than a hundred interviews with key European figures — represent an innovative approach to research on the history of European integration. The CVCE.eu website also provides access to a series of conferences, presentations and seminars and to customised digital publications created by users (‘MyPublications’).

All the collections are aimed at both the research and teaching communities and the general public, with the aim of improving understanding about the process of European unification and its historical, legal, political and economic dimensions. The research projects were mainly carried out in cooperation with national or international partners
