  9. 9. Europeana Research Grants Programme One of the key activities of the Europeana Research team was a grants programme for early career scholars. The programme was launched in September 2016. We were looking for individual research projects which make use of Europeana Collections for research purposes: employing state of the art tools and methods in the Digital Humanities to address a specific research question.

  12. 12. Meet our Grants Winners Nanna Thylstrup, University of Copenhagen Mapping colonial Copenhagen Three projects have been awarded a Europeana Research Grant: ‘With the generous funding that the Europeana research grant has provided, I have been able to undertake a project which aims to change the way people understand poetry. More importantly,I hope to make some contribution to promoting public engagement with archival materials - in this case the Europeana Sounds archives. I am sure that, discovering a small corner of the Europeana Collection can lead to bigger things, so the first task is to hook people in. ‘ Caroline Ardrey, University of Birmingham Visualising voice: Analysing spoken performances of nineteenth-century French poetry Timothy Duguid, University of Glasgow Interdisciplinary Metadata Frameworks: The MuSO Project CC BY-SA Europeana Research

Datasets relevant to CLARIN’s community are selected to be ‘harvested’; 2. Inclusion of obtained metadata in CLARIN’s search portal, the Virtual Language Observatory (VLO) after conversion from Europeana’s EDM format to CLARIN’s CMDI; 3. Selection of tools from CLARIN’s infrastructure to be included in a processing workflow based on Europeana resources; 4. Adaptation of the CLARIN infrastructure for increased load (expected increase in number of harvested and indexed metadata records) where necessary; 5. Potential actions to increase the visibility and ease of access of Europeana and its data within the CLARIN community and vice versa: ● Inclusion of Europeana APIs of potential interest to CLARIN’s target audience CLARIN’s “language resource and tool inventory”; ● Using CLARIN and Europeana’s communication channels (e.g. blog, newsletter) to increase bilateral awareness.
