Cloud Activities in Europeana
Cloud computing is increasingly a popular buzzword in the technology world. Europeana is involved in several cloud-related activities with Europeana Cloud project being the central one. In this talk we are going to discuss our cloud-related work and how it is going to help us with our future goals.
Pavel Kats , Chief Technology Officer

Europeana Fashion
Europeana Fashion is a best practice network, representing the leading public and private fashion museums, archives and collections from 12 European countries, built with the aim to publish online by March 2015 over 700,000 fashion-related digital objects, ranging from historical dresses to accessories, photographs, posters, drawings, sketches, videos, and fashion catalogues.

This year we will present the latest project's achievements, including the brand new portal and a new ambitious attempt: the creation of the first open digital visual thesaurus on fashion.

We have produced for this purpose more than 250 beautiful ink-on-paper illustrations under CC0 license that will describe the concepts of our multilingual fashion thesaurus. These illustrations, in black-and-white and rich in details, will not only serve to enhance searching Europeana Fashion content through visual classification, but they could play an instrumental role in Europeana's goal to promote and enable greater re-use of cultural heritage resources by creative industries.
Marco Rendina, Coordinator Europeana Fashion, Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale, Firenze
