The concept

Created in 2017 on the initiative of the Research Centre for Atlantic and International History (CRHIA) of the University of Nantes in association with the Laboratory of Excellence for Writing Europe’s new narrative (LabEx EHNE) and with the support of La Fabrique des idées Européennes (European Idea Factory) of the Alliance Europa regional programme, LIPE is now supported by the History, Art History and Archeology department (CRHIA and LARA, Archeology and Architectures Research Laboratory).

LIPE is a digital platform providing access to educational resources that are the output of research programmes in the humanities and social sciences with a focus on Europe. This is accomplished in partnership with education professionals. LIPE also provides online courses, consulting and support services for research programmes, and training courses for teachers.

LIPE offers teachers and educators a wide range of educational resources for use in the classroom and provides researchers with a permanent space for sharing and showcasing their work.
