  • Who are the partners?Europeana

    The European Library

    Polish Digital Library

    20 content providers

    12 strategic / technical partners

  • What will they be doing?Define the principles of engagement

  • But that is not all!

  • We will also investigate how we can build end-user services on top of this infrastructureResearchers

    In particular for researchers in humanities and social sciences

    Content & Data

  • In scope for the project (Europeana Research): Europeana Research Platform

    Content & Data



  • To allow others to build apps and services onGLAM

    *Ask which partners currently provides metadata aggregation ?

    Current europeana ecosystemMany different systems being run by each different aggregator there are technical costs and staff costs in running independent systemsBut there are transactional costs costs of tranferring data, checking data.And what happens if an aggregator wants to take enriched data, or even data from a different source. The end point is always Europeana

    Different type of system where aggregators share a technical framework with *
