Working Groups

Working Groups are set up to address ongoing activities and issues of continuing relevance within the Europeana Network. There is no limited timeframe for Working Groups; they can remain in existence whilst their purpose is required.

Working Groups are proposed and led by a member of the Members Council.

If there are topics you think should be tackled by a Working Group, please read the Terms of Reference and get in touch with the Councillor who best represents the scope of the issue.

  • Voting/Elections Working Group

    This group will make sure that the last open ends in the governance procedures and decisions related to the Europeana Network Association are solved before the elections in November 2016.

  • Europeana Pro Working Group

    This Working Group will identify business needs and priorities with relevant stakeholders/communities, support the development of Europeana Pro accordingly and feedback on site development.

  • Copyright Policy Working Group

    The aim of this working group is to work together with those actively engaged in copyright and make sure we align everyone’s interests wherever possible.

  • AGM 2016 Working Group

    This working group is responsible for the set-up of a yearly event, the Europeana Network Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

    The AGM creates the opportunity for Europeana Network members to meet, learn, discuss, feel engaged and get inspired but also networking opportunities with colleagues to share ideas, processes, what's working, and sometimes—more importantly—what isn't.

  • #AllezCulture Working Group

    The main objective of this working group is to demonstrate the benefits of Europeana via campaigns, tweets and blogposts to create a buzz around the breadth, depth and diversity of what Europeana contains.

    The #AllezCulture Campaign aims to enhance awareness about Europeana and the cultural riches it opens up access to, and increase support for Europeana.

  • International Rights Statement Working Group

    Exploring the potential for a shared space for managing international rights information.

    Copyright is an important topic and enormous challenge for digital library initiatives.The Interntional Rights Statement Working Group is focussing on the specific needs of digital heritage aggregators, such as Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America.

    The purpose of this working group is to explore the feasibility of developing a system of rights statements that can be used by both digital heritage aggregators, and could be opened to similar aggregators.

  • Europeana Art Advisory Board

    We want it to reach everyone interested in engaging with European art in all its facets.

    Our job is to provide counsel and guidance on how to make Europeana Art reach its goals, to invite new partners to share their art collections with Europe’s online users, and to suggest new opportunities and pathways for using and enjoying the collection on the world wide web.
