About the Learning Object

You are interested in the possibility partnership with Europeana, and wish to find out more about:

  •   What Europeana is and does;
  •   Why it may be of value to the commercial sector;
  •   Any relevant legal questions;
  •   Technical services available to support collaboration.

This brief overview gives answers those questions, with links to more detailed information, drawing on the work of EDItEUR in the Linked Heritage project, 2011-2013.

    Anyone considering commercial partnerships with the cultural sector more generally may also find useful ideas here.

The assessment questionnaire has not been prepared for this learning object, as it is intended primarily as a brief information sheet for commercial players interested in finding out the basics about Europeana and the work done in Linked Heritage, and pointing them to the full project content to find out more.
