The Arenberg Foundation
Starting with the restoration and scientific work on very rich family archives dating back to before the year 900, the Arenberg Foundation has published or contributed to the publication of many history books. The Foundation develops the promotion of European archives, history and culture; it also strives to develop an independent, apolitical "path in Europe" to make Europeans aware of their treasures and culture. The Foundation has for example launched two history prizes in 1992 and is about to begin work on a "Prize for Europe" in 2007, all prizes being granted by independent juries every two years. The Foundation contributes to culture through classical music concerts, artistic exhibitions in European capitals and supports social and historical events at the request and together with European cities and towns keeping a historical lien with the d'Arenberg and Europe in general. The Foundation has also financed the creation of an archives' museum in Enghien and is currently in discussions with the Museum of Europe to develop a common project.
