We ask for your support in the budget discussions about Europe’s digital infrastructure.Europeana, an EU flagship and global leader in its field, must be funded through the Telecom Guidelines of the Connecting Europe Facility, the proposed funding mechanism.
Europeana works with galleries, libraries, archives and museums in every European country to make knowledge and culture available online. We connect everyone in Europe with their shared history and heritage – 27 million books, pictures, films and recordings so far. Together, we’re pioneering new ways to engage people in culture through websites, apps, software and social media, through sharing our expertise, business models and code, and through services for education and tourism.
