In March 2020 a new Generic Service Project kicked off - Europeana XX: Century of Change. The ambitious project is driven by 17 partners and 5 Europeana aggregators for audiovisual heritage (European Film Gateway, EUscreen), photography (Photoconsortium), Jewish heritage (Judaica Europeana) and fashion (European Fashion Heritage Association), as well as technical partners.
Europeana XX highlights the key drivers of societal transformation captured in (moving) images, texts and sounds. A new thematic collection will bring together digital content and inspiring stories about people, movements and inventions that shaped the 20th Century and our everyday life. Pop-up exhibitions and subtitle-a-thons organized across Europe will allow audiences to experiment with tools for content curation and video subtitling.
Semantic enrichment tools will be developed to increase quality, discoverabilty and reuse of content and metadata.Through Europeana XX 2.5 million metadata records on Europeana will be improved and more than 100,000 high-quality records added.
