China in Europe. This is the first European digital heritage project with a Chinese Epicenter. PAGODE project was officially launched on the 2 nd of April. One of CEF Programme priorities is Europeana. The objective is to showcase the cultural treasures of Europe and to tell and illustrate gripping European stories on the Europeana platform in the form of thematic collections, taking visitors on a curated journey through Europe’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. Europeana developed its portal and now hosts over 50 million digital cultural resources.
PAGODE project will contribute to generating rich user experience and high audience engagement with Europeana, the European digital library, by proposing a thematic approach in the aggregation, curation and presentation of Chinese cultural heritage preserved in Europe.
PAGODE will promote further understanding of the cultural values of China and the cultural exchange between China and Europe, allowing Cultural Heritage Institutions to connect and share their collections and metadata across new sectors and borders and in this way to increase awareness and usage of Europeana to a wider audience, internationally. The project’s originality lies on the creation of a framework for a holistic overview of all Chinese collections within the scope of the pan-European area.
