Grants Opportunities for archives: Digitise documents and Metadata!

We are happy to launch our first grants dedicated to the digitisation of archival descriptions as well as documents – the grants are open to current and perspective Content Providers.

Deadlines are:

  • 11th April 2021 for the Digitise & Upload Grant
  • 2nd May 2021 for the Metadata Ingestion Grant

Applications should be made separately, but grants can be combined (i.e., an institution can apply to both grants with the same project – please indicate if so in the application).

Please also note that while the application guidelines and form are only available in English, you can fill in the application also in French, German, Italian, or Spanish.

DIGITISE & UPLOAD GRANT – deadline 11 April

Four grants of 2,600 EUR each to current or perspective APE Content Providers that also provide or aim to provide content to Europeana – the grant is open to any institution in the world that relates to the European continent, including its national or local history.

The grant aims to finance projects for the ingestion of new material in APE, or improvement of already existing collections, and/or addition of digital objects. This can include both digitalisation and upload of digital objects, and the improvement of metadata on digital objects already available in APE, and ingested through APE in Europeana.

Please note that projects will need to be finalised by Friday 30th July 2021 at the latest.
