Last March, a collaboration agreement was signed between the European Observatory on Memories (EUROM) —a project coordinated by the UB Solidarity Foundation that aims at creating a multidisciplinary network of public policies on historical memories— and the Austrian Ministry of the Interior. Consequently, the Government of Austria is the first European public institution that joins the efforts made by the EUROM to promote interdisciplinary research and academic activities centred on constructing public memory. This year, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Mauthausen concentration camp, both institutions are organizing a seminar and different events. 

The diversity of European memories required the creation of a transnational network to analyse, manage and communicate them. In order to achieve this goal, the EUROM has created a network that gathers every memory included in 21st century public policies. Some prestigious institutions and research groups from Europe and America have already joined the network, for example the International Committee of Memorial Museums for Remembrance (ICMEMO); the Museum of Free Derry; the Maison d’Izieu Association; the Finnish-Russian Citizens’ Forum; the National Institute for the History of the Liberation Movement in Italy (INSMLI); the Topography of Terror Documentation Center (Germany); the Mauthausen Memorial (Austria); the Museum of Occupations (Estonia); the Wewelsburg 1933-1945 Memorial Museum (Germany), and the Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies of Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada), among others.
