Working with and for you in the time of COVID-19

Europeana is following the restrictions agreed by the Dutch government to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Our staff members are working from home and still available to support you.

In this section you can explore innovative and inspiring examples of how the cultural heritage sector is harnessing digital cultural heritage to respond to these challenging times. You will find Europeana communications related to COVID-19, as well as resources which provide information, support and guidance in areas that reflect wider work across the sector. 

It's a section we will be continuously updating to reflect how we can support you and to share the best of how our sector is responding. If you have more ideas and examples please tell us.
