Public consultation on Europeana

All organisations and members of the public with a personal or professional interest in digital cultural heritage, or in Europeana in particular, are invited to express their opinion, experience and expectations with Europeana and the various aspects of the platform. Consultation period until 14 Jan. 2018.

The European Commission wants to know how citizens, professionals and organisations use Europeana, the European online platform for culture heritage that is visited approximately 700,000 times per month.

The platform gives access to over 53 million items including image, text, sound, video and 3D material from the collections of over 3,700 libraries, archives, museums, galleries and audio-visual collections across Europe. The platform can be used by teachers, artists, data professionals in cultural institutions and creative fields but also everyone looking for information on culture.

The public consultation will help to identify through an independent evaluation how Europeana is currently used and how this can be improved and made more accessible for everyone. The results of the consultation will contribute to further develop Europeana’s offers and increase its visibility and use for the European culture heritage online. Europeana will also be closely associated to the European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018.

You can access the online questionnaire via EUSurvey. You can reply until 14 January 2018 in any in any of the official languages of the EU.
