This Thematic Network called Europeana v3.0 is to provide the majority of the funding required for the continued functioning and development of the Europeana central services and the Europeana Network, from 01/06/2014 to 31/05/2015. It will facilitate the operation and development of Europeana for enriched metadata, digital objects and improved functionalities for the access and use of cultural resources; achieve better coordination and enlargement of the network of contributing organizations; create higher acceptance and usage rate among stakeholders and general public; and accomplish closer collaboration with the cultural and creative industries for the re-use of cultural resources. Activities include the expansion and coordination of the 2,200 network of contributing organizations, the enhanced ingestion and management of enriched metadata and digital objects, the promotion of Europeana services, further development of Europeana into a digital service infrastructure, new audience driven channels and closer collaboration with the creative industries. The Europeana Foundation will coordinate the Europeana Network of 800 experts, 15 consortium partners and over 2,000 data providers from libraries, museums, archives and audio visual collections. This wide network has already been crucial to the success of Europeana. Europeana v3.0 will nurture existing relationships and building new partnerships in a spirit of cooperation and mutuality. Europeana v3.0 will make additional efforts to reach out to underrepresented cultural sectors, Member States and non-European Member States relevant to European cultural heritage. Involvement and collaboration with the creative industries to extend the usage of cultural heritage resources beyond Europeana's portal is integral to the Europeana Strategic Plan 2011-15 and has a very important role in Europeana v3.0.
