For this reason, at the Aggregators Forum it was also discussed an important element for Aggregators sustainability: the advocacy campaign. other important topics addressed in the forum related to the recent evaluation of Europeana and the way forward, and the evolution of the Europeana Publishing Framework with a focus on the metadata component and related aspects.

Not only PHOTOCONSORTIUM was a protagonist of the meeting, sharing the experience as expert hub for heritage photography and the work done as aggregator for Europeana, but a presentation of the new project 50s in Europe Kaleidoscope was nicely delivered to the colleagues.
