Abstract

This research contract aims to develop a permanent exhibition on Spanish Innovation for the National Science & Technology Museum (A Coruña site). The exhibition shows a selection of distinct Spanish inventors, innovators and businessmen working during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, such as Isaac Peral, Leonardo Torres Quevedo, Mónico Sánchez or Emilio Herrera. For each innovator the exhibition shows their biographies in relation to pieces from the MUNCYT’s collection and other institutions as well as to patents and other documental resources.
