The Europeana Aggregators’ Forum is organising its fourth outreach event taking place online on 23 November from 9:45 to 12:30 CEST.
The common European data space for cultural heritage will bolster Europe’s cultural sector as it undergoes digital transformation and facilitate the generation, utilization, and repurposing of content across related domains. These domains may encompass cultural and creative sectors, tourism, education, scientific research, and various other sectors, each with its own data spaces. Europeana Aggregators play a key role in providing entry points into the data space, and their active involvement is crucial for a smooth transition from digital service infrastructure to data space.
This event will focus on the steps involved in publishing data on Europeana’s infrastructure and the tools provided by Europeana Foundation to aggregators and cultural heritage institutions. Additionally, we will explore similar tools and processes made available by aggregators in their own workflows and how this will all work together in the common European data space for cultural heritage.
Photoconsortium, as an accredited aggregator for Europeana, will have an active role in the event being part of the Panel 2 How aggregators envisage to operate in the data space.
