The project will demonstrate how European and Chinese Cultures are intermingled. To do so, it will ingest 10,000 new objects with Chinese-related content for Europeana and foster the metadata improvement of 20,000 objects already on Europeana for better search and user experience in the Europeana platform. 

The project will also deliver guidelines and best practice to enrich a protocol of interaction with the Europeana aggregators, which can support collaborations on the selection, metadata curation and annotation of Chinese-related content. Lastly, the project will deliver one physical exhibition, resources and editorials about Chinese Cultural Heritage in Europe and a new thematic collection on Europeana.

This project is a Europeana Generic Services project, and it is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
