Created by CVCE

European NAvigator (ENA) is a web-site about the history of Europe and its institutions since 1945 focusing on the development of a united Europe.

Using the site is free, although the documents are protected by copyright.

ENA is developed by the CVCE (Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l'Europe - Virtual Resource Centre for Knowledge about Europe), a Luxembourg-based public undertaking that is actively supported by the Ministry of Culture, Higher Education and Research.

ENA is available in English, French, German and Spanish, though some documents are available in other languages.



Multimedia resources

ENA is a large multimedia knowledge base:

  • original texts (treaties, etc.)
  • video clips
  • audio clips
  • press articles
  • photos
  • interactive maps
  • cartoons
  • tables


The content of the ENA is divided into five parts:

  • 'Historical Events' contains material on all the events that have contributed to the European integration process;
  • 'European Organizations' looks at the operation of all the institutions of the European Union (e.g. European Parliament, European Commission) and the various other European institutions;
  • 'Special Files' are devoted to specific subjects;
  • 'Interviews' contains exclusive interviews with people who have played a part in the European integration process (Jacques Santer, Otto von Habsburg, etc.);
  • 'ENA & Education' provides resources for teachers to enable their pupils to learn about European integration.


A thesaurus organises the material according to subject area.


A glossary explains terms relating to the European institutions and the history of Europe (e.g. ECSC, Marshall Plan,...) that appear in ENA.
