The Europeana online portal was launched by the President of the European Commission in November 2008 and currently provides access to over 19 million objects from European libraries, museums, archives, galleries, and audiovisual collections.
These objects include:
- Images - paintings, drawings, maps, photos and pictures of museum objects
- Texts - books, newspapers, letters, diaries and archival papers
- Sounds - music and spoken word from cylinders, tapes, discs and radio broadcasts
- Videos - films, newsreels and TV broadcasts
More than 1,500 heritage institutions contribute cultural content in Europeana. Their number and geographic coverage are steadily growing.
The objects relate to science, media and art. They are available in different formats (text, images, audio/video, etc.) and in every European language.
Managenergy.tv, European Commission webcast portal
The European Commission aims at promoting efficient multilingual communication with the high number of geographically dispersed in the enlarged Union using innovative solutions.
Since 2001, within the ManagEnergy program, the European Commission has been developing and using a combination of multimedia and Internet based streaming technologies to enable more people throughout Europe to benefit from its activities.
From within this portal, you will watch workshops, conferences, programme information days, contract negotiations and other events broadcast live on the Internet. These are combined at times with interactive chats enabling virtual participants to ask questions at the actual event and discuss related topics amongst themselves and with Commission staff.
After the events, online video-recordings provide an easy to use, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly resource.
Images are webcast within a user-friendly interface integrating video, audio, slides, speaker information, interactive chat, polling mechanism and other useful information on a single screen.
