Projects

Europeana Foundation is the operator of Europeana, the European Union’s digital platform for cultural heritage. Our activities to maintain and develop the core service platform are funded under the Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) project funding cycles. Throughout the years, we have also participated in other EU funded projects to support cultural heritage institutions in their digital transformation. Focus areas vary from digitisation and aggregation of high-quality data to technological innovation, reuse and capacity building.
