Odeuropa is the first pan-European project to uncover and present the heritage smells of the continent. It will use data mining strategies such as image recognition and computational linguistics to find out more about lost scents. NOSE-network is proud to be collaborating in this three year project and will be offering their multi-disciplinary knowledge on olfactory language, perception and history of scents.

Odeuropa is likely to be the first project that has both a visual logo that is inspired by smell designed by Kate McLean, as well as a scent logo designed by Frank Bloem.

The Odeuropa project will be led by: Inger Leemans (NL-Lab) and Marieke van Erp (DHLab) at the Humanities Cluster of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences; Peter Bell (Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg); Sara Tonelli (Fondazione Bruno Kessler); Raphaël Troncy (EURECOM Sophia Antipolis); William Tullett (Anglia Ruskin University); Dunja Mladenić (Jožef Stefan Institute); and Matija Strlič (University College London).

Odeuropa’s main collaborating partners: International Flavours and Fragrances (IFF); Olfasense, Mediamatic Amsterdam; Museum Ulm; National and University Library of Slovenia (NULS); Dutch Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage (DICH); The Leibniz Institute for Contemporary History; the Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO (SNCU); The International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM); and the NOSE Network.
