We recognise the huge value of linking researchers with cultural heritage institutions. Bringing Europe’s galleries, museums, libraries, and archives within digital reach allows researchers to access a much wider scope of material and opinion. Through this page you can explore our funding programme for research and the resources of the Europeana Research Community.

The Europeana Research Grants programme awards funding for events that bring together cultural heritage professionals and researchers.
