In this technical workshop we presented the architecture and implementation choices for the Technical Space of Europeana Space, specifically:

  • The Data Infrastructure that includes the retrieval and storage layers for content and metadata from available sources.
  • The Metadata Processing Unit that integrates available services for the management and manipulation of metadata resources.
  • The Access APIs that constitute a set of interfaces that will be made available for the delivery of resources and the creation of applications.

Moreover, the workshop allowed participants to learn more and experiment with the Europeana Labs, presented and coordinated by Europeana Foundation representatives James Morley and Remy Gardien
