…. and the winner is…. (E-Space incubated projects)


One of the key objectives of Europeana Space is to help creative industries to leverage on digital cultural content for creating new products and services – thus creating new businesses and job positions.

To do so, a series of 6 E-Space Hackathons selected 3 innovative projects each, which went through another round of selection during a series of Business Modelling Workshops. Key selection criteria was the business potential of the idea, or product, or service proposed in the chosen projects.
