Summary:  In this article, we investigate the notion of a Galois object for a locally compact quantum group $\mathbb{G}$. Such an object consists of a von Neumann algebra $N$, together with an ergodic integrable action of $\mathbb{G}$ on $N$ for which the crossed product is a type I factor. We show how to construct from this data a possibly different locally compact quantum group. By way of application, we prove the following statement: any twisting of a locally compact quantum group by a unitary 2-cocycle is again a locally compact quantum group.
