Back in September, we asked Europeana Network Association members to share their favourite moments - whether that was a collection, idea, conversation or event - from the first 10 years of Europeana. Those moments were shortlisted and as part of the Europeana tenth anniversary celebrations, 10 were presented at the AGM in Vienna last week.

We share an in-depth interview with Kurt’s grandson Markus Geiler, exploring the digital transformation of this artefact and the impact of digitising cultural heritage.
