    • Tensions of Europe. Technology and the Making of Europe This network has explored and defined ways to study transnational European history with a focus on the roles of technology as forces of change. In Phase 1, the networking phase, Tensions of Europe brought together a group of close to 200 scholars with shared interests from many disciplines and 17 countries. Phase 2 was the transition phase during which the Transition Committee formulated an Intellectual Agenda and participants formed collaborative research groups and programs. Tensions of Europe has now entered Phase 3, the research phase. Network scholars are pursuing their research and some will do so by taking part in the ESF EUROCORES Programme Inventing Europe.
