It encompasses 6 themed pilots where experimentation and new business models are developed. The Europeana Space project is developed in cooperation with Europeana, the European portal for Cultural Heritage.
The aim of the Europeana Space project is to create new opportunities for employment and economic growth within the creative industries sector based on Europe's rich digital cultural resources. It will provide an open environment for the development of applications and services based on digital cultural content. The use of this environment will be fostered by a vigorous, wide-ranging and sustainable programme of promotion, dissemination and replication of the Best Practices developed within the project. The extensive resources and networks of the Europeana Space consortium will be drawn on to ensure the success of the project.
