Impact Community: Goals v Action 2019

What are the community goals for 2019?  How do they deliver real change through the Europeana Network, and how are we progressing toward them?  Take a look through the three goals for the impact community, broken down into actions.  And read about why this action contributes to the goal, who is leading, coordinating or overseeing the work from the Steering Group and what the current status is.  

A midsummers note - August 2019

from; Impact Community Manager, Julia Fallon

"We've developed this page to enable the Steering Group to share the progress made by the community throughout the year.  So far in 2019, the Steering Group was fully formed and held it's first virtual meeting in June.  In the meantime time sensitvie activities such as planning for the Conference in Lisbon have been coordinated between Maja, Dafydd and myself. 

The next Steering Group meeting - tentatively scheduled for September, will properly distribute leadership of the activities amongst it's members, and determine which of these goals will be carried through to 2020.  If you read about a peice of work that you would like to find out more about, or get more involved with then we'd love to hear from you."
