Europeana version 1.0 ( is a 2.5 year project that will bring the prototype to full service. In 2010 this project will implement a new version of Europeana with added functionality and access to over 10 million digital objects.

This project is the successor network to the EDLnet thematic network which created the EDL Foundation and the Europeana prototype. Following the launch of the user designed and driven prototype of Europeana the EDL Foundation wishes to use Europeana v1.0 to develop an operational service and solve key operational issues related to the implementation and functioning of the Europeana. Stakeholders, including the general public when the full operational service is offered, will be involved in Europeana and informed how they can contribute and access content. The work of Europeana v1.0 will include the development and implementation of all the necessary processes to create and run such an operation and a full scale business development operation to ensure a steady stream of content is made available. Additionally dissemination efforts to end users will be executed to ensure take up and continuous involvement of end users in order to achieve sustainability of such a service. Among the tools to enlarge user involvement will be the development of generic (web)services that allow others to re-use and re-purpose the data. Key infrastructure components and value-added services will be implemented by the Europeana Connect BPN. Content will come from existing sources such as The European Library and from the linked Europeana Travel, MIMO and Judaica proposals, as well the results of current eContentPlus projects: Athena, EFG and Europeana Local.
