Introducing | The AthenaPlus blog

The AthenaPlus blog will be used as a very personalized instrument that will allow project partners and readers to bind with the project. The AthenaPlus blog will give project partners the opportunity to report about their high-impact dissemination events and success stories. The blog will also provide a constant up-to-date news flow.


The AthenaPlus project
In early March 2013 the AthenaPlus project, co-financed by the European Commission and set out to make cultural heritage wider accessible through Europeana, was launched. 40 partners from 21 EU member state countries are contributing content. AthenaPlus is a Best Practice Network aiming among others to improve the quality of metadata. By sharing experience from hundreds of experts from all over Europe, the project supports the development of new applications for digital heritage. Project partners develop innovative tools, e.g. for creating digital exhibitions. AthenaPlus also looks into the development of cultural tourist routes applications. An educational toolbox will enable experimentation for the tourism sector and the education market. Apart from that, project partners also organize workshops and trainings to support museums and other cultural heritage institutions in their work to make their rich digital content accessible to everyone.
