Research

The digital transformation of Europe’s cultural heritage institutions makes varied and valuable resources available to researchers, professors and university students. We work to connect academia with cultural heritage institutions, and support heritage professionals in working with researchers. We encourage the development of skills to embrace digital change in research and new ways of teaching and learning at university, and nurture forms of community engagement involving non-professional researchers. Through this page, explore resources to support these activities and find out more about Europeana Research. For any enquiries, contact Alba Irollo
