Because Europeana represents cultural heritage institutions and material from all EU member states (and beyond), we work hard to make sure we're using models and systems that work for everyone. That's why we work with our partners on standardizing how we deal with data - presenting it in a way that's accurate and useful and in a way that means it can be used beyond Europeana Collections.
Our frameworks for interoperability and standardization of data, rights, and measurement of impact have been widely adopted. Europeana is copied as a model by India, US, Brazil, Korea, Canada as well as within the EU by its member countries.
