Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– Provide support to cultural institutions and other public and private partners to increase the amount of content and metadata accessible through Europeana that is of high quality and suitable for reuse, as well as to increase awareness and usage of Europeana

Priorities
– Clearly identify the quality and quantity of the digital content and metadata to be improved and the new high-quality material to be included;
– Demonstrate how the improved or new content has the potential to generate interest, engagement and re-use among precisely defined target users, including their specific needs;
– Ensure that all digital objects and rich metadata produced as part of the action are ingested and available on Europeana

Among financed actions
– Increasing the quality of existing content available through Europeana;
– Enhancing the structure, richness and multilingual capacity of existing metadata to increase discoverability and use of the material;
– Making available new high quality material with rich item descriptions that has potential to generate high audience engagement and reuse. If necessary, this may include limited and targeted digitisation of content that can be made available for free re-use;
– Providing expert support to cultural institutions to improve the quality of the content and metadata that they make available, including capacity building among institutions and professionals;
– Raising awareness and use of Europeana across Europe, through applications, collections or exhibitions highlighting content of particular interest for specific audiences or through user engagement activities
