TV Archive Project to Supply Europeana

EUscreen ( is a new project that will supply TV archive footage to Europeana ( The website contains a blog, information about the project and the partners, publications, and events. Visitors can also subscribe to the EUscreen mailing list or follow the project on Twitter or Facebook.

EUscreen is a 3-year project funded by the eContentplus programme of the European Commission. During that time more than 30,000 items that capture Europe's television heritage (videos, photographs, and articles) will be channeled into Europeana. EUscreen will also develop its own multilingual portal that will specialize in information about TV archives and television research.

The portal will be launched in 2011 and will be directly connected to Europeana. The EUscreen consortium is coordinated by Utrecht University and consists of 27 partners (audiovisual archives, research institutions, technology providers and Europeana) from 19 European countries.

Europeana is Europe's digital library, museum, and archive. Launched in prototype in November 2008, it now brings together 5 million digitized items from Europe's cultural and scientific heritage organizations. Europeana's fully operational service will launch later in 2010, giving access to 10 million items. This new content is coming in from a group of projects that are working with heritage organizations across Europe. EUscreen works with television archives. Archives Portal Europe brings in collections from national archives, and the European Film Gateway brings films, scripts, and stills from cinematheques and film archives to Europeana. The full list of projects is available at
