The digital transformation of Europe’s cultural heritage institutions makes varied and valuable resources available to researchers, professors and university students. We 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. We nurture forms of community engagement involving non-professional researchers. 

Through this page, explore resources to support these activities and find out more about how you can collaborate with Europeana Research. For any enquiries, contact Alba Irollo.

Europeana APIs allow you to build applications that use the wealth of our collections drawn from the major museums and galleries…


Datasets on other platforms

In close collaboration with the Europeana Foundation’s technical colleagues, Europeana Research works to make our data available across different platforms with the aim to bring them closer to academia and research. Explore some examples below.

CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory

Through the Virtual Language Observatory, researchers can explore the language resources made available within the CLARIN research infrastructure and reuse them in combination with a variety of tools. It aims to provide an easy-to-use interface which facilitates a uniform search and discovery process for many resources. Thanks to CLARIN’s long standing contribution to the Europeana’s infrastructure, users can find a selection of Europeana datasets on the Virtual Language Observatory which are relevant to research based on language resources. Discover the dataset.


The Social Sciences & Humanities Open Marketplace is a discovery portal which pools and contextualises resources for Social Sciences and Humanities research communities: tools, services, training materials, datasets, publications and workflows. The Europeana dataset is discoverable via the SSH Open Marketplace. Discover the dataset.

European Open Science Cloud

The European Open Science Cloud, or EOSC, is an environment for hosting and processing research data to support EU science. Europeana’s APIs are accessible through EOSC’s Portal Catalogue and Marketplace, an integrated platform that allows access to resources for various research domains along with integrated data analytics tools. Discover the dataset. is the official portal for European data, managed by the Publications Office of the EU. It aims to collect the metadata of public sector information available on public data portals across Europe. Europeana has published its metadata and APIs on Discover the dataset.
