Europeana in de NT100 van 2016

19 december 2016

Nominet Trust, the UK’s leading tech for good funder, has named Europeana in the 2016 NT100 – a global celebration of this year’s 100 most inspiring social innovations using digital technology to drive social change around the world.

Uit het persbericht:

"NT100 plays a valuable role each year in inspiring those with the influence and resources to accelerate the adoption of tech for social good. It brings together entrepreneurs, innovators, NGOs, charities, technologists and others to share knowledge, experiences and skills to introduce social change on a global scale. Projects featured in the NT100 have wide-ranging purposes, from those determined to democratise access to quality education and healthcare, to those connecting minority communities and evoking empathy.

Following a global call for nominations earlier this year Europeana was selected by a judging panel of tech and charity experts in recognition of its work.

Europeana is Europe's digital platform for cultural heritage, providing online access to tens of millions of digitised items from cultural institutions across Europe - from books, photos and paintings to television broadcasts and 3D objects - opening up this shared cultural wealth and working to make it freely available for learning, for research, for creatives and for pleasure.

"The combination of cultural heritage and technology can be truly transformative and brings great benefits to society – promoting understanding, learning and creativity."

~ Jill Cousins, Executive Director Europeana

The 2016 NT100 was selected from 700 projects discovered this year through a combination of research and public nomination. Shortlisted projects were reviewed by Nominet Trust and a panel of partner organisations."
