Europeana Space delivered a rich programme of specialist Workshops, Hackathons and Demonstrators, attracting stakeholders, targeted groups, and representatives from the creative industry Sector, all over Europe. Europeana Space intended to stimulate the creation of new prototypes and ideas to be tested and demonstrated for possible further adoption and exploitation, to unlock the business potential of the digital cultural heritage and to empower the creative entrepreneurship of big and small industries. SMEs were helped to develop their services and applications through marketing and business modeling support, mentoring and incubation services, to present themselves to major industry players, through the Pilots, Workshops and Hackathons and through attendance at project events and online networking.
The project’s end is 31 January 2017. Outcomes are:
