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 related areas. These could include cultural and creative sectors and tourism, as well as education and scientific research, but also other sectors and their data spaces. Aggregators play a key role in providing entry points into 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 is organising its fourth outreach event taking place online on 23 November from 9:45 to 12:30 CET in English. This event is open to all, and we particularly welcome stakeholders from the European Commission and cultural heritage institutions to join!
This event will focus on the steps involved in publishing data on Europeana’s infrastructure and the tools provided by Europeana Foundation to aggregators and cultural heritage institutions in this context. Additionally, we will explore similar tools and processes made available by aggregators in their own workflows and how this will all work together in the common European data space for cultural heritage.
If you work with digital cultural heritage collections or share your data with Europeana, it will be an opportunity to find out more about how your organisation can contribute to the development of the data space and how your organisation and your data can benefit from it. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to learn from aggregators about the process of publishing aggregated data, and see what happens behind the scenes for content and metadata to be prepared for publication. This will be a chance to grasp the operational aspects when it comes to presenting data from hundreds of cultural heritage institutions in one platform and facilitating and improving its discoverability and usability.
If you are interested in learning more, join us in November and make the most of this opportunity to hear from the experts who make it happen.
