It will demonstrate its applications in the terminology enrichment and metadata mapping process.

The Linked Heritage project is a best practice network which demonstrates enhancement of quality of content, in terms of metadata richness, re-use potential and uniqueness; to demonstrate improved search, retrieval and use of Europeana content.

The consortium includes representatives of all the key stakeholder groups from 20 EU countries, together with Israel and Russia. These include ministries and responsible government agencies, content providers and aggregators, leading research centres, publishers and SMEs.
