Let's keep Europe’s culture open to everyone online - Last Days

 


To the Members of the European Council, Commission and Parliament 


 
 
We ask for your support in the budget discussions about Europe’s digital infrastructure. Europeana, an EU flagship and global leader in its field, must be funded through the Telecom Guidelines of the Connecting Europe Facility, the proposed funding mechanism. 
 
Europeana works with galleries, libraries, archives and museums in every European country to make knowledge and culture available online. We connect everyone in Europe with their shared history and heritage – 27 million books, pictures, films and recordings so far. Together, we’re pioneering new ways to engage people in culture through websites, apps, software and social media, through sharing our expertise, business models and code, and through services for education and tourism. Europe needs our innovation – there’s faster progress in the digital sector than most other areas of the economy.

Supporting Europeana is supporting Europe.
Europe can’t afford to lose a service that is both good for people and good for the economy. See our blog for more reasons to protect Europeana’s funding.

Europeana is a catalyst for change for cultural heritage. Why?

 
  • Because we make cultural heritage accessible online.
  • Because we have standardised the data of over 2,200 organisations, covering all European countries and 29 European languages.
  • Because we provide creative industries and business start-ups with rich,interoperable material, complete with copyright information.
  • And because we ensure that every citizen, whether young or old, privilegedor deprived, can be a digital citizen.
Europeana has been transformative in opening up data and access to cultural heritage and now leads the world in accessible digital culture that will fuel Europe’s digital economy.
Through Europeana today, anyone can explore 27 million digitised objects including books, paintings, films and audio.
