The ERIH network was developed in the years 2003 to 2008 by eleven project partners, supported by the European Union.

For the continuation of the network┬┤s work, in February 2008 ERIH founded a registered association based on German law named ERIH-European Route of Industrial Heritage e.V.. Since that time the number of members increased from 17 founder members to more than 250 members from 24 European countries. Please click following to see the list of our members.
