The first Europeana website launched 15 years ago today, a milestone that has led to many more in the Europeana Initiative’s work to empower the digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector. To mark the occasion, the heads of the Europeana Initiative reflect on its last 15 years - and look to its future at the heart of the common European data space for cultural heritage.
Harry Verwayen, General Director of the Europeana Foundation, Marie-Véronique Leroi, Chair of the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and Rob Davies, Chair of the Europeana Network Association, share a new year message on behalf of the Europeana Initiative, as we welcome an exciting year ahead.
As we move into the summer, Harry Verwayen, General Director of the Europeana Foundation, looks forward to Europeana's plans for the coming months and the topics in focus for the cultural heritage sector.
As the Europeana Foundation begins a new chapter of its story, with Martina Bagnoli taking on the role of Supervisory Board Chair, Elisabeth Niggemann and Joke van der Leeuw-Roord reflect on their time guiding the development of the Europeana Foundation.
