The CARARE Best Practice Network was funded under the European Commission’s ICT Policy Support Programme and was designed to involve and support Europe’s network of heritage agencies and organisations, archaeological museums and research institutions and specialist digital archives in:

  • making the digital content for the archaeology and architectural heritage that they hold available through Europeana,
  • aggregating content and delivering services,
  • and enabling access to 3D and Virtual Reality content through Europeana.
