Under the title "Digitale Databases en de Universiteitsgeschiedenis" the "Descartes Centre for the History and Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities" had invited to a symposium at the University of Utrecht. Historians and information scientists from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany gathered in the University Library of Utrecht on the 19th of May, 2010.

One Result of the successfully conference is the arrangement about the foundation of a European network of University and Science Historians and Engineers with the aim of a cooperation support.
