The Editorial Team

The Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC) is a British not-for-profit, non-political, and non-religious organisation founded in 1999 by a group of philanthropic historians, scientists, engineers and social scientists. It is dedicated to researching and popularising the history of pre-Renaissance civilisations, especially the Muslim civilisation, that have had an impact upon the scientific, technological and cultural heritage of our modern world.

FSTC is the world’s leading producer of educational material dedicated to the history of science within Muslim culture and civilisation. It researches this material drawing upon a diverse pool of scientists, engineers, historians and social scientists from the world’s leading universities, museums and centres of learning.

Since its formation FSTC has created and supported many educational initiatives in the UK and elsewhere. The most popular of these initiatives are MuslimHeritage.com, and the 1001 Inventions global project, which has engaged with millions of people through films, publications, exhibitions and educational products.
