Europeana Space technical workshop [23th of March 2015, Brussels]

The Europeana Space project, in which KU Leuven and LIBIS are a partner, is establishing a Technical Space as a framework for storing, accessing and processing cultural heritage content and metadata. Based upon IPR licensing, curators, scholars, professional users and developers will be able to search for and manage resources within a safe space, to use and re-use them for the evolution of knowledge and the development of applications.

In this technical workshop the architecture and implementation choices for the Technical Space will be presented, specifically:
  • The Data Infrastructure that includes the retrieval and storage layers for content and metadata from available sources.
  • The Metadata Processing Unit that integrates available services for the management and manipulation of metadata resources.
  • The Access APIs that constitute a set of interfaces that will be made available for the delivery of resources and the creation of applications.
The workshop will allow participants to learn more and experiment with the Europeana Labs, presented and coordinated by Europeana Foundation representatives.
