Odeuropa Network

The aim of the Odeuropa Network is to promote international and interdisciplinary expertise and activities around olfactory heritage and sensory data mining. Registered members are enrolled in our newsletter, which provide updates of the Odeuropa consortium’s activities (e.g. ‘smellinars’, workshops, research findings) and olfactory heritage events. In addition, members can optionally list their information and expertise in the public members’ directory, shown below. Please fill in our online registration form to become a member.

Tip: The entries in the member’s directory are updated on an ongoing basis. To find other members by e.g. location or shared expertise, please use the Search feature at the top of the table. This acts like a live filter on all the entries in the directory.

Tip: The keywords associated with each entry are drawn from a pre-defined list: Anosmia, Anthropology, Archaeology, Architecture, Art History, Art, Botany, Chemistry, Computer Science, Consulting, Cultural Heritage, Design, Education, Food & Aroma, Fragrance, GLAM, Heritage Science, History, Linguistics, Literature, Malodours, Maps & Smellscapes, Marketing, Medicine, Museology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Psychology, Sensory Studies, Tools & Instrumentation, Tourism.
