Advocacy

Europeana represents over 3,500 cultural heritage institutions from across Europe. As such, we have a responsibility to speak up and make the digital cultural heritage sector work as well as it can for all of those institutions. And so we engage in advocacy activity at a European level - on critical topics such as the public domain and copyright - by and on behalf of our partners, the Europeana Network, and our audiences. We have an Advocacy Framework that provides a structure within which the Europeana Foundation can comfortably engage in advocacy activity, in a transparent and accountable manner.
