Categories: NewsFlash Date: Jan 22, 2010 Title: Launch of EUScreen Website
EUscreen, a new project that will supply TV archive footage to Europeana, launched its website this week.
EUscreen is a three-year project funded by the eContentplus programme of the European Commission. During that time over 30,000 items that capture Europe’s television heritage (videos, photographs, articles) will be channelled into Europeana. EUscreen will also develop its own multilingual portal that will specialise in information about TV archives and television research.
The portal will be launched in 2011 and will be directly connected to Europeana. The EUscreen consortium is coordinated by the University of Utrecht and consists of 27 partners (audiovisual archives, research institutions, technology providers and Europeana) from 19 European countries.
Europeana and one of its sister project's the European Film Gateway (EFG) both actively support DL.org bringing expertise through the project's Working Groups, which are contributing to key outputs, such as the enhanced versions of the DELOS Reference Model and the Technology and Methodology Cookbook.
