Successful local and international partnerships have been crucial for expanding our horizons, knowledge and experience, while also representing recognition of our work.


OUR PROJECTS

Europeana Inside

European project

In 2012 the Europeana Inside project started with the vision that cultural institutions should be able to easily provide content to Europeana. Along with the goal of lowering barriers to content sharing, the Europeana Content Kit (ECK) has been created. The ECK is a piece of software and documentation toolkit that has been integrated into existing commercial and open source Collections Management Systems as well as into aggregators. Moreover, its components can be integrated into other systems.

Europeana Creative

European project

Europeana Creative was a European project which enabled and promoted greater re-use of cultural heritage resources by creative industries. In cooperation with the Natural History Museum from Prague Semantika developed Memory Match - an educational game combining the classic memory game of finding pairs with a quiz game testing player’s knowledge of natural history. We also developed Europeana Labs - a portal offering inspiration, content and support to anyone looking to re-use Europeana content.

Europeana Food and Drink

European project

Europeana Food and Drink seeks creative solutions and sustainable models for commercial re-use of digital cultural content around the theme of ‚food and drink‘. A suite of products developed by the project partners will showcase the commercial potential of cultural heritage collections and make the case for their digitization. As part of the project, Semantika developed the Tea Trail London: www.teatrail.london, a web app exploring the heritage of tea in London through three unique trails.
