Europeana Aggregators’ Forum outreach event 15 December 2022

The Europeana Aggregators’ Forum outreach event on 15 December 2022 showcased the role of aggregators and cultural heritage institutions in collecting, maintaining, and increasing the discoverability of content in the context of the common European data space for cultural heritage.

The common European data space for cultural heritage will support Europe’s cultural sector in its digital transformation and promote the creation, use, and reuse of content in areas such as the cultural and creative sectors and tourism, as well as education and scientific research.

Aggregators will play a key role in the data space, and their active involvement is crucial for a smooth transition from digital service infrastructure to data space. In this context, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum organised an online outreach event on the 15th of December from 9:45 to 12:30 CET, in English. This event focused on the role of the aggregators and cultural heritage institutions in collecting new content and maintaining up to date data in the context of the common European data space for cultural heritage.

If you work with digital cultural heritage collections, watch the recording to find out more about what the data space might mean for your organisation and your content, and to understand how your organisation can contribute to develop and benefit from the data space. Learn from aggregators about the process of aggregation, and discover ome of the practicalities, challenges and opportunities when collecting and providing content to Europeana.
