How to join

Are you a cultural institution, research centre, university, SME, project? Are you interested in Linked Heritage activities and in being part of the Linked Heritage network?

Linked Heritage is open to collaborate with experts, institutions and other projects who are interested to establish a close cooperation in order to achieve the respective objectives. Contact us at info[at]linkedheritage[dot]org illustrating your competences and interests. You will receive an invitation to sign a Cooperation Agreement from the project's coordinator (DOC,30 kb).

There are different ways of cooperating with Linked Heritage:

  1. participate as content provider, by contributing to the ingestion of new items to Europeana;
  2. participate to the debate of working groups;
  3. disseminate information about Linked Heritage in the home country and beyond and contributing to the further enlargement of the Linked Heritage project.

The cooperation between external contributors and Linked Heritage project is formalised by means of a Cooperation Agreement, which clarifies its terms and conditions.

There are two different kinds of Cooperation Agreements, depending on the type of collaboration:

  • the first one (DOC, 830 kb) is dedicated to those party who are interested to participate to the activities of the Working Groups,
  • the second one (DOC, 862 kb) is thought for the institutions who are willing to become also LH content providers.

Choose the form of cooperation which best fits your interests! Two copies of the Agreement should be sent to the project coordinator, containing the data and signatures of the cooperating institution. After the coordinator's signature, one copy will be sent back to the new cooperating institution.

  • Be part of a new large Digital Cultural Heritage community, which includes representatives of all the key stakeholder groups from more than 20 EU countries, together with Israel and Russia: ministries and responsible government agencies, content providers and aggregators, leading research centres, publishers and SMEs
