Europeana DSI - Digital Service Infrastructure - April 2014 - August 2017

DSIs are composed of ‘core service platforms’ which enable trans-European connectivity and interoperability, and related ‘generic services’ which link national and sectorial infrastructures to the platforms. 
Under funding from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Trans-European Telecommunications Networks Work Programme 2014 & 2016 , Europeana will develop into a widely recognised platform of services and resources, not only for metadata references, but also for access to cultural content, tools and technologies, projects and other services.

As a Digital Service Infrastructure, Europeana will continue to connect the online collections of Europe’s cultural heritage institutions. 

The core objectives of the Europeana DSI are to innovate the aggregation infrastructure, boost the distribution infrastructure and work towards long-term financial stability through business model innovation.

To create a complete, cohesive and integrated Digital Service Infrastructure, Europeana relies on its partnerships with domain and national aggregating partners - including Michael Culture -  are involved in the project, leading by Stichting Europeana Europeana Foundation.

Michael Culture is involved as the aggregator for museums.
