The progress meeting of 50s in Europe Kaleidoscope project took place on the 5th June in Helsinki, attached to the annual event of Photoconsortium hosted by Museovirasto.

Partners met particularly to discuss the next steps in two main areas of the project: the development of the services for visual recognition and for crowdsourcing that the project is implementing to support metadata creation and enrichment for photographic content relating to the fifities, and the content selection for the project’s exhibition to be lauched in a double format: as a travelling physical exhibition of printed photographs to premiere in Pisa on 6th September, and on Europeana as a virtual exhibition to be published online in Autumn 2019.

Other topics tackled in the meeting touched upon the progress of the MOOC, to be available for user testing in Autumn and the brand new access point for educational content online, the upcoming Educational Portal which will be available soon also including cooperation with Europeana community on education.

The project Fifties in Europe Kaleidoscope is co-financed by the European Union in the framework of CEF Connecting Europe Facility Programme under GA n. INEA/CEF/ICT/A2017/1568496.
