As a Digital Service Infrastructure, Europeana will continue to connect the online collections of Europe’s cultural heritage institutions. Europeana DSI-1 is funded by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Trans-European Telecommunications Networks Work Programme.
The core objectives of the Europeana DSI-1 are to innovate the aggregation infrastructure, boost the distribution infrastructure and work towards long-term financial stability through business model innovation.
To create a complete, cohesive and integrated Digital Service Infrastructure, Europeana relies on its partnerships with domain and national aggregating partners.
The EU’s Digital Agenda aims to improve the digital availability and online accessibility of Europe’s cultural memory. The innovative Europeana DSI-1 helps achieve this by making sure that Europe’s businesses and citizens reap the full benefits of the technological revolution in digital services in culture.
