The Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine brings together educational, cultural and scientific institutions to promote public and academic understanding of the history of science, technology and medicine. The Consortium awards fellowships for researchers, produces events for academics and for the public and provides online resources for teaching, learning and research. The Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine was founded in 2007, originally as a consortium of cultural and educational institutions across the Philadelphia area. The Consortium has since expanded to include leading institutions across the United States and Canada. The Consortium helps to make the collections and scholarly resources of the member institutions more broadly available for research in the history of science, technology and medicine.
