At the occasion of the completion of the printed edition of the Opera omnia the Bernoulli-Euler Society, together with the Platform MAP of SCNAT, is organising a ceremony on October 28/29, 2022 in Basel.

This is also the transition to a new area: all works, letters and notebooks of Euler, the Bernoulli and their entourage are to be presented online and freely accessible on a modern digital platform. This immense task is now in the hands of the international Bernoulli-Euler-Committee, a body of the Bernouli-Euler Society.
