For more than a hundred years, the Euler Committee has published the works and correspondence of the mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707–1783). The last printed volume was celebrated with a ceremony in October.

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, has organised a ceremony on October 28/29, 2022 in Basel.

This was 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.
