As of January 15, the EUscreen project website is live. The project website contains a blog, information about the project and the partners, publications, events and so on. Visitors can also subscribe to the EUscreen mailing list or follow the project on Twitter or Facebook.
EUscreen started in October 2009 as a three-year project funded by the eContentplus programme of the European Commission. Within the duration of the project over 35,000 items that capture Europe’s television heritage (videos, photographs, articles) will be made available online through a freely accessible, multilingual portal. The portal will be launched in 2011 and will be directly connected to Europeana. The EUscreen consortium is coordinated by the University of Utrecht and consists of 27 partners (audiovisual archives, research institutions, technology providers and Europeana) from 19 European countries.
