Making Europeana Collections more multilingual is a priority and so we were delighted to take part in an event on 24-25 October with the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and cultural heritage institutions on the topic of multilingualism. The two-day event at the Hanaholmen Culture Centre, Espoo, Finland, titled ‘Multilingualism in Digital Cultural Heritage - needs, expectations and ways forward’ was carried out under the umbrella of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which is currently being hosted by Finland.
With a month to go until Europeana 2019, we’re really excited to announce details of the full programme. Read on to discover all of the engaging keynotes, interactive sessions, workshops, panel debates and activities planned over three days in Lisbon on 27, 28 and 29 November.

This is the second part of our reporting on the recent events for all things Wikimedia – the annual Wikimania conference, held this year in Stockholm – where Europeana held several associated events. Following the main conference, Europeana convened the inaugural meeting of National Libraries (and equivalent consortium organisations) who are currently working directly with Wikidata and its underlying software Wikibase. This event was organised by our Wikimedia liaison Liam Wyatt and hosted by our partners the National Library of Sweden. Liam updates us here on the meeting content.
