Welcome to the website of the

Foundation for the History of Technology!

The Foundation for the History of Technology (SHT) seeks to develop and communicate knowledge that increases our understanding of the critical role of technology in the history of the modern world. Established in 1988, SHT initiates and supports scholarly research in the history of technology. This includes large-scale national as well as international research programs, and numerous individual projects, many in collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology. SHT also coordinates Tensions of Europe (TOE), an international research network of more than 250 scientists from all over Europe and the United States who study the role of technology as an agent of change in European history.

The Foundation for the History of Technology is supported and hosted by:
