The project aims to increase the amount of high-quality content and metadata accessible under the Europeana Sport collection. The project will deliver almost 24,000 new digital objects relating to sporting heritage and improve more than 5,000 objects already available on Europeana.
Additionally, the project will hold a series of collection day events inviting the public to share their stories and memories related to sport in each of the EU Member States in which partners are based. From these events, the project will deliver and showcase approximately 250 high quality user-generated stories on Europeana. Moreover, these events aim to raise awareness of Europeana among the general public, encouraging the use of our collections across Europe.
This project is a Europeana Generic Service project, and it is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
