During the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Europeana held a meeting with high-level policymakers and experts in multilingualism to discuss the challenges and opportunities of multilingualism in digital cultural heritage. This report summarises the key outcomes of the meeting including the benefits, challenges and solutions identified.
Making Europeana Collections more multilingual is a priority and so we were delighted to take part in an event on 24-25 October with the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and cultural heritage institutions on the topic of multilingualism. The two-day event at the Hanaholmen Culture Centre, Espoo, Finland, titled ‘Multilingualism in Digital Cultural Heritage - needs, expectations and ways forward’ was carried out under the umbrella of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which is currently being hosted by Finland.
Finland is under the spotlight this year as it plays host to the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Today, we look at how Finnish cultural heritage institutions are opening up new heritage experiences for their audiences by getting involved in the Europeana Europe at Work season.
‘Europe’s large-scale digital transformation is a fact. Now is the time to make sure that the offline platforms and infrastructures supporting and driving digital transformation in the cultural heritage sector are as cemented as those online.’
Iași, Romania, (April 17-18) - Europeana brought together politicians, policymakers and professionals from across Europe, under the umbrella of the Romanian EU Presidency, to explore the next horizon of infrastructure needed to support digital cultural heritage.
