Europeana Food and Drink Open Innovation Challenge – 2D & 3D Product Design


Europeana Food and Drink would like to invite you to get involved in our third and final Europeana Food and Drink Open Innovation Challenge “Reworking Digital Heritage of Food and Drink to Create Material Productions”

We’re looking for creatives and craftsmen all over Europe to use the Europeana Digital Library collections to create 2D or 3D products around the theme of food and drink. This can vary from all kind of objects such as glasses, wine bottles, boxes used for product packaging, tools, stickers & logos or handicraft products for educational or commercial use.

Europeana Food and Drink aims to enhance knowledge and highlight the value of the European food and drink heritage, promoting artisan food productions and their relation to cultural identity. The project is part of Europeana, a database of some 30 million digitised cultural and historical documents, images, sound and video files from Europe’s museums, libraries, galleries and archives. The Europeana API allows you to access most of the collections and incorporate them into objects in many fields such as design, advertising and marketing, digital 3D reproduction tools or other traditional printing techniques.
