2019 CEF Telecom call - Europeana (CEF-TC-2019-1) CEF-TC-2019-1-Europeana Closed!


The objective is to provide support to cultural institutions and other public and private partners to continue to increase the amount of high quality content and metadata accessible through Europeana and suitable for reuse. To this end, the call allows cultural institutions to develop new ways to make accessible such content through the creation of curated collections, exhibitions or any other personalised ways of engaging users, as well as to increase awareness and usage of Europeana.


Actions funded by this call must include at least one of the following activities:

  1. Aggregation of new thematic high quality curated content and metadata with rich descriptions in order to develop curated collections, exhibitions, or other personalised ways of generating rich user experience and high audience engagement. This material should be carefully selected and curated around important and relevant topics of pan-European significance. If necessary, this may include limited and targeted digitisation of content that can be made available for free re-use.
  2. Using existing Europeana selected content to create or enrich high quality curated thematic collections and exhibitions on a relevant topic, as indicated above. If necessary, this may include activities aiming at increasing the quality of existing content and metadata (e.g. enhancing the structure, richness, and multilingual capacity) available through Europeana, especially regarding item descriptions.
