European Fashion Heritage Association


The Association regularly applies and supports the participation of its members in new projects and initiatives in the research and innovation programmes of the European Commission (e.g. H2020, Creative Europe, CEF Telecom). Here are some of the most relevant international projects in which we have been involved.

Europeana DSI

Current project

The Europeana Digital Service Infrastructure (DSI) showcases Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage online and supports the sector in its digital transformation. Currently, we are in the fourth operational cycle of the Europeana core service platform, started in 2015.


Current project

The Cultural Heritage Sector is key in the advancement of the Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe. Not only does it provide access to vast amounts of reusable content, but it can also be seen as an R&D lab of the cultural and creative ecosystem, contributing both to economic advancement and to society at large.

Europeana XX – Century of Change

Current project

Europeana XX is a Europeana Generic Service project, co-funded under the CEF-Telecom program, that focuses on the 20th century and its social, political and economical changes as documented in photographs, videos, images and archival material.

The lack of granular and rich descriptive metadata highly affects the searchability and usability of the digital content stored in museums, libraries, archives, as well as on Europeana; this often proves to offer a frustrating user experience on the different portals.
