Can I address only one objective of the call?
All project proposals must address both objectives: Objective 1: aggregation of high quality curated content and Objective 2: Use of innovative technological approaches and tools. For further information, take a look at Europeana Generic Service call.
Should my proposal focus only on 3D content, or can it aggregate other types of content?
This year's call encourages the aggregation of 3D models, but it is open to all types of new, high-quality content on relevant and appealing topics of European significance.
Should my proposal cover only new content that is not yet available in Europeana?
The focus of the proposal must be on aggregation, curation and possible digitisation of new content. Projects are allowed to include a limited amount of content currently available on Europeana, in which case they should also include activities which aim to increase the quality of this content and metadata, ideally to make it available for reuse.
How is high-quality content defined?
The content to be submitted must comply at least with Tier 2 (for content) and Tier B (for metadata) of the Europeana Publishing Framework and allow free online access to the digitised objects. Content digitised during the project must be available for free reuse (Tier 4).
What does it mean for the content to be free for reuse?
Free for reuse content is available under the licenses CC0, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, and the Public Domain Mark. To see more information regarding the licenses, click here.
What does it mean to ‘contribute content to Europeana through existing aggregation infrastructures'?
It is very important that applicants have a clear understanding of aggregation channels for the content. Europeana doesn’t aggregate content directly but via a strong network of national and domain aggregators. For more information, take a look at the 37 Europeana aggregators across Europe.
