Summary of main topic and goals
This is NOT a Horizon 2020 project, but this Europeana project is funded under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) in order to develop Europeana as a Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI). DSIs are composed of ‘core service platforms’ which enable trans-European connectivity and interoperability, and related ‘generic services’ which link national and sectorial infrastructures to the platforms. Under funding from CEF, Europeana will develop into a widely recognised platform of services and resources, not only for metadata references, but also for access to cultural content, tools and technologies, projects and other services.
