Europeana for us: transforming the Western Balkan with culture

Tamara Butigan Vučaj

Abstract

Europeana is the largest investment and project of the European Union when it comes to digitalization of cultural heritage. Although firmly connected to the European Union, Europeana is open to the non-EU part of Europe as well as to other continents, in an attempt to present as fully as possible a digital replica of the culture of the old continent. Serbia’s experience in cooperation with Europeana has been recognized as a successful story and this paper could inspire other Western Balkan countries to be more active, and besides the benefits for institutions and individuals, it is obvious that it could fill the gaps when it comes to European cultural heritage.

Evropeana za nas: transformišemo Zapadni Balkan kulturom

Evropeana je najveća investicija i projekat Evropske unije kada je u pitanju digitalizacija kulturnog nasleđa. Iako čvrsto vezana za Evropsku uniju, Evropeana je otvorena i prema delu Evrope koji nije u EU, ali i prema drugim kontinentima, u pokušaju da što sveobuhvatnije prikaže digitalnu repliku kulture starog kontinenta. Iskustvo Srbije u saradnji sa Evropeanom prepoznato je kao uspešna priča i ovaj rad bi mogao da inspiriše ostale zemlje zapadnog Balkana da budu aktivnije, a pored koristi za institucije i pojedince, nesporno je popunjavanje praznih polja u mozaiku evropskog kulturnog nasleđa.
