In 2020, Europeana piloted the use of Outcome Harvesting in our impact work, an evaluation method increasingly applied in the development sector. Here we share what we learned about the methodology, how we used it and how it could be useful to cultural heritage impact practitioners.
For a decade, Europeana has been working to standardise an approach that we - and others - could adopt to better understand the impact of digital cultural heritage. We look at the progress we have made towards this goal over the last year.
We interview Ana Aziza, Project Manager, Fondation du patrimoine (France), who shares how an economic impact assessment completed by the Fondation provided insights into the value of the work they do and cultural heritage in France.
Embedding impact at the heart of Europeana’s work on capacity building for digital transformation has been a major focus of our activities over the past year. We share highlights from our work and tools to support your own impact practice!
We are delighted to have published our Europeana 2019 and Europeana 2020 impact assessments! We share learnings from the reports, explore how virtual and in-person events create different outcomes for participants and look at what this means for our future plans.
Today, we publish Europeana’s standardised question bank, a tool to support cultural heritage organisations to investigate the impact they create for their stakeholders. The tool is one of a number of resources being developed to accompany Phase 2 of the Europeana Impact Playbook - explore how to use it.
On 11 and 12 May 2021, Europeana will bring together cultural heritage professionals, policy makers, academics and researchers to discuss impact horizons of research when nurtured by digital cultural heritage. The organisers explain where the idea of a symposium came from and how its programme took shape.
We are delighted to share the first in a series of impact assessments we have conducted using and testing the Europeana Impact Playbook. The reports, carried out between 2019 - 2020, are the result of an intensive year of looking into the impact of Europeana’s work to support the digital transformation of the heritage sector. Explore the findings.
At Europeana, the ambition of ‘digital transformation’ has been at the heart of what we do for many years. Now, we have a shared working definition of digital transformation for the cultural heritage sector.
We are excited to launch an upcoming series of webinars to support professionals in using the Europeana Impact playbook, supporting you to better plan, measure and understand the impact that digital cultural heritage creates.
A treasure trove of manuscripts in Europeana Collections has lain unloved for too long. Through Europeana Manuscripts, we’ll start bringing out the best of this content and celebrating the work of the experts and institutions who are working to preserve and digitise the textual heritage that reflects our history.
The project organisers have released a new training module entitled “Manage, Improve and Open Up Your Research Data”. The module addresses concepts such as the FAIR Principles, Open Science, and Data Management Plans, and is geared towards researchers in the digital humanities.
