  • Quickly through the proposed strategic lines for Europeana Strategic Plan 2020 and then look at how the work you have all done creating Europeana1914-18.eu contributes directly to that – finishing with some of the actions we are undertaking for 2014 – where something is being commemorated…..
    In creating the Europeana Strategy for 2020 we looked at where our strengths lie
  • Be bold- be inspired
    Proud to work here
    It is about safeguarding and enhancing.
    It is about access. The transmission of creativity so that others can re-use them to shape their future.
  • We are now a network of 800 strong, and you must take credit for what has been achieved
    You are the transmitters of the DNA of Europe’s culture.
  • We have developed an aggregation infrastructure that allowed over 2500 partners from every member state to contribute over 30 million objects on every topic imaginable in 36 languages from every member state, and beyond.
  • We have been able to develop a shared data model that is future proof (LOD etc.).
    ‘The coordination and standardisation of a shared data model that is fit for the web of the future’
  • We have been able to agree on a very far-reaching licensing infrastructure that makes the metadata available for everyone to use and re-use. Also mention public domain mark. <Picture Paul, ...?>
  • By using the brilliance of the Oxford University Community Collection concept, that they had already applied to their Great war archive and using their expertise we have covered 12 countries so far – another 7 or 8 coming up this year. You can even see one in action here today!
    And as you know we have been able because of the huge efforts of Europeana Collections 1914-1918 been able to in the new version of the site launched yesterday combine these personal memories with the institutional ones……
    10.000 stories
  • This was all made possible by you
    Network to movement
  • So how does that boil down for our strategy 2015-2020?
  • Thanks to you/commission
    Infrastructure
    Knowledge society
    Opportunities but also challenges
  • The strategy has been set by many of you here and adheres to 3 high level principles

  • This makes us different from Google. This makes us different from Wikipedia. But we welcome anyone who is willing to work with us on the basis of these 3 values.

  • While a portal can present its aggregated content in a way that invites exploration, the experience is always constrained pre-determined by a set of design decisions about what is necessary, relevant and useful. Portal to platform: we will shift our focus from inviting individuals to explore their heritage on the europeana.eu portal, to developing a community of professional organisations  who re-use the data, content, knowledge and technology that Europeana and its partners make available for them. Will the portal still exist? Yes, we will still have a service that can be used as a search interface for our collective memory. But it will be used more by professionals who are searching for re-usable data and content than by individuals searching for culture. Development, maintenance and marketing of the search portal will take no more than 20% of our efforts. 80% of our efforts will be spent on developing the platform and instruments of re-use such as APIs, LOD, etc.
  • We want to reposition the brand of Europeana as a facilitator for the Cultural and Creative Industries
  • Continue to Work with our data providers and other stakeholders to ensure that all digitised Public Domain material is freely available for re-use without any restrictions. In order to achieve this goal the principles established by the Europeana Public Domain Charter and the New Renaissance report should be applied to all publicly funded digitisation projects in Europe.
  • Work with our data providers on promoting ‘open unless’ policies in the cultural heritage sector that ensure that digital content that is not subject to third party rights is made available under conditions that allow re-use. 
  • Keep pushing for good long term and public solutions to deal with multilingual issues.
