Europeana Awareness


Europeana Awareness was a Best Practice Network, led by the Europeana Foundation. The objectives of the project were to publicise Europeana to users, policy makers, politicians and cultural heritage organisations in every Member State so as to encourage the use and contribution of content. This was achieved by public media and user engagement campaigns in the partner countries. To enhance the network new partnerships were developed with broadcast organizations as well as with the cultural tourism and genealogy sectors.
