The Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) showcases and provides online access to Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage.
As an initiative of the European Union, and funded under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), Europeana DSI-4 is the project that operates the Europeana DSI. The service is provided by a consortium of 19 partners, coordinated by the Europeana Foundation.
The consortium collaborates with the Europeana Network Association (ENA), a strong and democratic community of 3,000+ experts working in the field of digital heritage. We also closely work with the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum (EAF), consisting of national, domain and thematic aggregators.
The consortium partners, EAF and ENA work in close collaboration towards our goals in line with the Europeana Strategy 2020-2025. We work towards a strong public service that supports Europe’s cultural heritage sector in its digital transformation. Implementation is supported by the European Commission and the Expert Group on Digital Cultural Heritage and Europeana (DCHE) and its subgroups.
