Working in the cultural heritage sector is all about making a difference to the people who visit and use our products and services. We believe that we are all better off if we understand how the things we do contribute to bringing about change. To support cultural heritage professionals to grow this understanding, we have developed the Europeana Impact Framework, at the core of which you can find the Europeana Impact Playbook, webinars, impact assessments and the Europeana Impact community. Explore and use them below!

How to use Outcome Harvesting to investigate your impact

Created: 8 August 2022

In 2020, Europeana piloted the use of Outcome Harvesting in our impact work, an evaluation method increasingly applied in the development sector. Here we share what we learned about the methodology, how we used it and how it could be useful to cultural heritage impact practitioners.
