Event Details

Europeana and Institut National d'Audiovisuel (INA) invite representatives from the cultural sector, Wikipedia, and business design to discuss and analyse 5 real life examples of services based on Open Data, identify the value created by those services and discover what lessons can be learnt from them. We will invite five organistions who have developed, or are in the final stages of developing services that use Open Data, to present their cases to this panel.

The output of this meeting will be a publication that will be shared widely across the GLAM sector, serving as an inspiration for the services that can be created through the re-use of Open Data. 


Over the past 10 years there has been a strong desire to open up cultural heritage to a wider audience via the World Wide Web. This push has been based largely on the belief that cultural history belongs to everyone, but also on the axiom that Open Data would generate large societal and economic benefits. It would increase digital literacy, bridging cultural diversities, and it would fuel a new, digital economy. 

Europeana was largely built on these same principles. It was established in 2008 to open up access to Europe’s cultural heritage so that new creative works and services would be developed on top of it. Over the past 5 years we have aggregated over 20 million metadata objects from over 2000 Museums, Libraries and Archives, and we have taken all the steps necessary to make these available in a standardized and open format. On September 12 the complete set was released for the first time under the CC0 Public Domain waiver. With that we’ve laid the foundations, but the building is far from finished: We need to work together as cultural institutions and creative industries to reap the opportunities that we have sown.  To do this successfully, we need to demonstrate what can be achieved with Open Data.

Europeana ( is a single access point to the digitised European cultural and scientific heritage. The online portal was launched by the President of the European Commission in November 2008 and currently provides access to more than 50 million cultural heritage objects from around 3500 libraries, museums, archives, galleries and audiovisual collections all over Europe. We believe in making cultural heritage openly accessible in a digital way, to promote the exchange of ideas and information. This helps us all to understand our cultural diversity better and contributes to a thriving knowledge economy.
