General information on the project:

Scope of this presentation: following the success of the first year, WP2 continued to deliver results in this reporting period. Overall progress for this year has been good, with no major deviations from the work plan. The content gathering campaigns for Europeana 1914-1918 were successful, both in terms of public engagement and content added as well as audience reach.

This year also saw the launch of the Europeana 1989 campaign, aiming to create a digital archive of memorabilia connected to the fall of the Iron Curtain. Besides the objects that were gathered, the campaign provided important insights into the challenges of managing a campaign which deals with more recent events. These lessons have been documented and will be taken on board in future campaigns.

The collaboration with the Wikipedia community was launched in January and continued throughout the year. A great variety of events were organized as part of the project, including an ambitious international photo competition “Wiki Loves Public Monuments.” As one of the results, a strategic plan for future collaboration between the two communities (Europeana Network and the Wikipedia community) was written in December.

Three core WP2 objectives Research in end-user involvement that will help define opportunities and challenges for Europeana Launch a two thematic campaigns that each cover a specific challenge for gathering and linking UGC to Europeana Establish close collaborations with the Wikipedia Community

Wikipedia Collaboration: Key results • Enable the Wikimedia community to work with GLAM content (for instance through Edit-a-thons) • Objects added through the collaboration generated 18,825.448 page impressions on Wikipedia in 2013 • Valuable help with finding GLAM partners to work with in various follow up projects. • The internationally oriented focus of the cooperation supports intrachapter cooperation and pan-EU campaigns: • Pan EU challenges (Wiki Loves Public Art, WWI, 1989) • Wiki Loves Public Monuments (2.650) – “Special Award for the best photo of a First World War-related photo”

WP2 Lessons learned in YR2 • The 1914-1918 campaign model is robust, and has inspired memory institutions outside the consortium to organize collection days. • A large number of records (stories) and related files still await cataloguing by our local subject experts. • The 1989 campaign requires a different and more challenging level of engagement, as these events are more recent in public memory • Europeana proved once more to act as a driver for pan-EU campaigns and receive a lot of visibility • Many ways to collaborate with Wikipedia. Bringing the Europeana Network and the Wikipedia Community together
