Time Machine is a program that brings research together teams and a large number of institutions from all over Europe. The goal of this consortium is to develop new technologies for the scanning, analyzing, accessing, preserving and communicating of cultural heritage at a massive scale. The resulting data are the basis for the reconstruction of the historical evolution of most European cities and the economical, cultural and migration networks between these urban nodes.

This project is made possible with support from the FET Flagship Horzion 2020 program of the European Commission.
