  • You may have seen this representation of Europeana
    Access to 30 million digital objects, via their metadata from 2300 museums, libraries, archives, audio visual institutions across Europe. All interoperable with each other and many of them now with rights labels attached – bringing this stuff together so that it is discoverable and the user can find the Art Nouveau buildlngs of Horta alongside the glass of Lalique and the paintings of Gallet, and a video on the Art nouveau movement from InA….but you have to be pretty determined to really use the site. We’ve done work on usability, on multilingualism and on presentation of topics but a site that is about browsing across 28 countries’ histories cannot be all things to all men or all children or all genealogists etc
    You might also more recently have seen other renditions of Europeana
  • Such as this one
    Where we ask people to bring in the 1st world war memorabilia they have in their attics, we digitise it on the spot and put it online
  • France starts this week with 70 locations across France collecting these personal stories for the whole week. This is the 11th country we have run the collection days in and we will do another 9 in 2014
  • But a major reason to do Europeana 1914-1918 was to use peoples personal histories of the first world war to engage them with their shared official history held in our memory institutions across Europe. So you can not only see the personal stories about Ypres, you can also see the offical records such as this
  • Book by Percy Levy, from 1917 and held in the Jewish Museum in London
  • A similar example is our collaboration with HistoryPin over 1989
  • Where again peoples memories of a more recent period of history are being collected – here are images from Lithuania and will be shown alongside other material we hold in our institutions shortly.
  • And then there are initiatives such as Europeana Fashion, showing the material we have related to fashion only, within a single channel. This attracts a new audience, but also is very attractive to large fashion houses who want to show off their archives and are prepared to pay to help!
  • The work of Europeana
    We pull in the digitally available material of our cultural heritage institutions and enable it to work together so that it can be pushed or pulled out by communities wanting to view, reuse, research and discover our cultural heritage.
    Users can find this material in places they already use, Google, Wikipedia, Facebook, thematic sites, educational Apps, tourism apps, the list can be endless and it is scaleable.
    We have impact in many areas:
    connects Europe
    makes Europe’s culture available to everyone
    supports economic growth
  • We have some great examples in the API being reused by the memory institutions themselves to take back content that is about their countries heritage, that belongs or contributes to their collections, Or its reuse in education such as this site of the national science museums which is powered by Europeana or our wonderful Open Culture App which came out of Glimworm, our next speaker, developing Muse in a Europeana Hackathon and launching it as the Rijksmuseum reopened physically being able to apply the same basic software and idea to a wider set of Europeana data.
  • As a Digital Service Infrastructure under CEF we expect to be able to serve more digital culture for even more creative reuses as well as being able to give back enriched material to the partners who have provided their data in the first place.
  • And we’ve started to set this up under a project called
    A network…..
    Buidling a ….
    that
  • Managing the full cycle from using the data for inspiration to working with curators and developers to the development of new applicatoins
  • Mulitlingualism
    Providing access to a critical mass of metadata and content, APIs and technical services and business support and advice services via the Europeana Open Labs
    Developing the Europeana Content Re-use Framework to allow content providers to make their content available for defined re-use scenarios
    Implementing the infrastructure and services Europeana needs to successfully support the re-use of European cultural resources and long-term business development
  • Access to a large database of inspiring (rights cleared!) cultural digital data for new, interactive applications
    Access to a large amount of (rights cleared!) assets for new products, with ready-made APIs and IPR frameworks
    The support of renowned cultural institutes and business modelling and development experts to deliver top-notch products to the market
    Get the chance to build an innovative product that helps European cultural heritage to reach new audiences
    Get to network with other cutting-edge creative industry companies, world-famous cultural heritage institutes and business development experts in the Europeana Open Labs
    And may even win a business incubation support package to help you get your product to market
  • eBooks
    Incubator
    Glimworm
  • I think Europeana is an investment in the future of Europe. Europe’s cultural richness and diversity is being made available digitally to the wider world and to its own citizens, for mutual understanding, for democratic access to our shared past and as fuel for creativity & new business.
    I want to talk about the role that Europeana and its ecosystem of cultural heritage and research institutions has played and continues to play as we shift more and more into the digital world and why therefore I think that Europe, Parliament, Council and Commission should be very proud of their achievement to date. They have tried to lift us beyond the economic alliance.
    Europeana has been a major catalyst in the digital shift for the cultural heritage institutions across Europe. It has created access to culture online and is now together with this ecosystem poised to become a catalyst for innovation.
