Europeana Network Association AGM 2015


Europeana logo“We are Europeana”

The Europeana Network Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) is an annual key event for Europeana and its network. It provides the opportunity for Europeana and its partners for all to share, discuss and develop specific areas of mutual interest.

The 2015 edition of this event will start on Tuesday afternoon 3 November and will continue until Wednesday 4 November. During the AGM delegates will reflect on the work accomplished in 2015 and look ahead to the challenges and opportunities for the coming years.

Furthermore, part of the meeting will reflect on the Europeana elections, which will have an important role in our future; more information about this topic will be added to this page soon. 31 candidates have come forward to campaign for seven places on the Europeana Network Association Members Council, and the voting begins on 3 November.
