At Europeana 2020, we want to explore with you how we can support a sustainable, responsible and inspiring cultural heritage sector for today and tomorrow. We’re delighted to announce the launch of our call for proposals and invite you to join us in leading these discussions.
Europeana’s strategy for 2020-2025 imagines a cultural heritage sector powered by digital and a Europe powered by culture. We have identified what this means for copyright, and brought our plans together into a strategy for copyright 2020-2025.
We are excited to launch an upcoming series of webinars to support professionals in using the Europeana Impact playbook, supporting you to better plan, measure and understand the impact that digital cultural heritage creates.
In our ‘Professionals in Focus’ series, we speak to our Councillors about their roles, working lives and plans for their time on the Members Council. This month, Marco Streefkerk discusses digital curation at the Anne Frank House, and facing the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.
With the call for proposals for Europeana 2020 open, and some exciting suggestions already coming in, Susan Hazan and Marco Rendina take a look at the role of the Europeana 2020 Selection Committee, its criteria for evaluating proposals, and how we are working to make the conference a truly co-created event.
Two complementary digital conferences organised by Europeana and the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek are supporting cultural heritage institutions in their digital transformations, by focussing on the importance of building capacity and skills to do with copyright. The conferences are organised as part of Germany's Presidency of the Council of the European Union, putting cultural heritage in the spotlight for Europe's policymakers. We take a look at these events as part of our ‘Strategy in Motion’ series.
As part of our ‘Strategy in motion’ series, Gregory Markus updates us on the EuropeanaTech AI in relation to GLAMs Task Force, which has just published the results of a survey of artificial intelligence (AI) in the digital cultural heritage domain.
A new Task Force run by the Europeana Communicators community begins this month. It intends to research examples of interesting, engaging and effective storytelling from around the web and produce recommendations to further develop Europeana as a ‘powerful platform for storytelling’. Its chair, Beth Daley, tells us about it.
To celebrate five years of working work together, Europeana and European Schoolnet have produced a new publication which explores their work promoting innovative learning with digital cultural heritage. We explore some of the highlights.
September only means one thing for the Wikimedia community, and that is Wiki Loves Monuments! In this post, Rebecca O’Neill, Project Coordinator for Wikimedia Community Ireland, reflects on the competition’s influence in Ireland and how to take part.
In June, Europeana brought together 60 cultural heritage professionals from across Europe for a special series of peer-to-peer workshops on ‘Digital transformation in the time of COVID-19’. In this post, participant Graham Bell reflects on how the GLAM sector can work with online communications channels and explores how the Cultura Trust has adapted to this ‘new normal’.
In this year’s Europeana Network Association (ENA) elections, we are looking to fill nine seats on the Members Council. We invite our members from all backgrounds and sectors relevant to Europeana to stand for election.
Digital curation is becoming a familiar concept to many in the cultural heritage sector, but do we realise its potential in making digital cultural heritage reusable for research? Agiatis Benardou discusses the work of the APOLLONIS Task Force, and the processes it has followed to help researchers access disparate archives to study the 1940s in Greece.
