EUROPEANA DSI-2 (2016-2017)
ACCESS TO DIGITAL RESOURCES OF EUROPEAN HERITAGE
The Europeana DSI-2 project builds on and continues operation of the existing Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure’s (DSI) Core Service Platform following the Europeana DSI-1 action (2014-2015). It is the second project for the completion of Europeana’s strategy 2015-2020. It is in line with the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Trans-European Telecommunications Network’s work programme, delivering interoperability, connectivity and coordination for digital cultural heritage at a European level and providing efficient solutions for access and distribution of multilingual and multi-domain resources in digital European cultural heritage.
The role of PHOTOCONSORTIUM, invited to participate in the DSI for the first time in 2016 as the expert hub for photography, is to:
– Participate in the metadata improvement action of existing datasets in Europeana portal (WP1)
