Europeana Cloud: Unlocking Europe’s Research via The Cloud

Period:February 1, 2013 - December 31, 2015


Europeana Cloud is a Best Practice Network, coordinated by The European Library, designed to establish a cloud-based system for Europeana and its aggregators.

Lasting from 2013 to 2015, Europeana Cloud will provide new content, new metadata, a new linked storage system, new tools and services for researchers and a new platform - Europeana Research. Content providers and aggregators across the European information landscape urgently need a cheaper, more sustainable infrastructure that is capable of storing both metadata and content.

Researchers require a digital space where they can undertake innovative exploration and analysis of Europe's digitised content. Europeana Cloud meets these needs.
