On 29 November 2023, the Europeana Network Association (ENA) held its 2023 General Assembly meeting, engaging in interactive discussions around the strategic interests of ENA and the Europeana Initiative. The participation of our members was greatly welcome and appreciated.

As we find ourselves, with the Europeana Initiative, at the heart of the common European data space for cultural heritage, the meeting provided a great opportunity for ENA members to discuss how they can contribute and help shape the data space. We looked at our current professional practices and experiences with digital heritage, and what we expect that we can bring to the development and use of the data space.

Participating members had an opportunity to explore and engage with an exciting new Country Groups initiative that ENA is launching together with the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and the Europeana Foundation, with a view to improve impact at country or regional level by acting as local hubs of knowledge and expertise. Members also learned more about how they can get involved with initiatives to champion the data space and the Europeana Initiative in their own countries.

The Assembly launched the 2023 Members Council elections and voting period.

The half-day event took place online and was moderated by the ENA Management Board. The programme included discussions and activities on:

  • The Europeana Initiative ‘Country Groups’ pilot action

  • Culture versus cultural heritage in the data space

  • Approval of the formal ENA documents (annual and financial reports)

  • Launch of the 2023 Members Council elections and voting
