Second Europeana Creative challenge


Europeana Creative is opening a second round of challenges: creative developers, designers, start-ups and other entrepreneurs are invited to create applications that reuse Europeana content in the themes of Tourism or Social Networks.

The best ideas in the themes of Tourism and Social Networks will receive a tailor made Incubation Support Package as a prize, helping creators bring their product idea successfully to the market! The Incubation Support Package includes business mentoring, technical support, assistance with identifying and accessing finance, facilitation of business partnerships, access to specialised testing environments, marketing and promotion support.

Need some inspiration? Europeana Creative has developed some innovative Pilot Applications to demonstrate the things you can do with Europeana content and a bit of imagination. The Tourism Pilot Application, called VanGoYourself, encourages people to recreate classic scenes from some of world’s most famous paintings in a contemporary setting, which can then be shared on social media. The objective of the Social Networks Pilot, Sound Connections, (beta) is to attract suppliers of websites with social elements to embed Europeana content in their services. The pilot phase will focus on bird and airplane field recordings, as well as city sounds from Amsterdam and London. 

For more guidance on what Europeana content you could use and how to access it, please visit the Europeana Labs platform and the Europeana Creative blog. The deadline for applications is August 28th 2014 at 16h CET. The best applications will be invited to pitch their concept at our Open Innovation Challenges event in Barcelona on 23 September 2014.
