Consultation on Europeana, Europe’s digital platform for cultural heritage

Oct 17, 2017 | News

(17 October 2017) – Today, the Commission launches a public consultation on Europeana to hear the opinions from citizens and organisations with a personal or professional interest in digital culture available online.


Europeana is visited approximately 700,000 times per month. It 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.
