Europeana Space, Best Practice Network - Spaces of possibility for the creative re-use of digital cultural content.
The aim of the Europeana Space project was to create new opportunities for employment and economic growth within the creative industries sector based on Europe’s rich digital cultural resources. It provided an open environment for the development of applications and services based on digital cultural content. The use of this environment was fostered by a vigorous, wide-ranging and sustainable programme of promotion, dissemination and replication of the Best Practices developed within the project.
The objective of Europeana Space was to increase and enhance the creative industries’ use of Europeana by delivering a range of resources to support their engagement. The use of Europeana by the creative industries is still limited by factors including issues around the IPR status of content and the need for business models demonstrating the potential for exploitation of available content. In addressing these problems Europeana Space brought together high-level key expertise from the European creative industries, technology-based enterprises, the cultural heritage sector and higher education.
The Europeana Space consortium had 29 partners, from 13 European countries.
