The revolution in digital technology and the accessibility to new material via digital storytelling are changing the way researchers are able to look at the period of the First World War. Projects like Europeana 1914-1918, which combines institutional and publicly contributed material, are disrupting the research life cycle and promoting new insights into historical research. Dr. Agiatis Benardou, Senior Researcher at Digital Curation Unit / ATHENA R.C. – a Europeana DSI-4 partner – fills us in.
The Digital Europe Programme is a new funding programme from the European Union which will shape and support the digital transformation of Europe’s society and economy. Europeana will be co-financed by this programme from 2022. Take the EU's survey on the priorities of the programme now and show them that support and ambition for digital cultural heritage is vital.
We are delighted to be launching the fourth call for proposals within the Europeana Research Grants Programme. We invite you to send in your submissions for organising events that bring together cultural heritage professionals and researchers.
