The second international EuropeanaTech conference took place on February 12th and 13th 2015 in Paris, France. The EuropeanaTech community has grown tremendously since the first EuropeanaTech conference in 2011. Not only in the number of active network members, but also in its impact. Europeana is uniting hundreds of experts from across the EU to share knowledge and jointly shape the future of memory organisations in a networked environment. Specifically on the technology front, Europeana has developed into a point of reference in various areas, including data modelling, innovative reuse of cultural heritage assets, semantic enrichment and –discovery. Several innovations proposed by EuropeanaTech Community have now been adopted by others. Notably, the metadata application profile used by the Digital Public Library of America is based on the Europeana Data Model. Many of the applications and tools developed in the context of Europeana are made available through the Europeana Labs that’s buzzing with activity since it was launched earlier 2015.

EuropeanaTech 2015 brought the international network of technical specialists from memory organisations, research institutions and creative industries together to network and share progress. It discussed topics that the Europeana community should address, and advises on the technical development of Europeana and related initiatives. EuropeanaTech 2015 gathered creative innovators in the heritage domain, ranging from staff contributing to institutional strategy, R&D software developers, academic researchers, managers of future oriented projects and so on.

It was a pleasure meeting you all in Paris!
