I am Head of R&D at the Austrian National Library, a large Europeana content provider. I’ve been heavily engaged with Europeana since its invention; currently I am the chair of the Members Council Management Board which gives me the privilege of working together with a great group of people who believe in the value of sharing our digital cultural heritage. I’ve coordinated a couple of Europeana projects, contributed to setting up EuropeanaTech and organised the Europeana Creative Culture Jam. - In my day job I currently manage a massive digitisation operation and work on strategies for crowdsourcing and digital humanities.
