Impact

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, case studies and an active Impact community. Explore and use them below!

The Europeana Impact Playbook is a step by step approach to help cultural heritage professionals design, measure and narrate their impact. Download Phases one, two and three of the Playbook, and explore resources from each phase which support impact practice.
