On Monday the 16th March 2015, the German partners of the E-Space TV Pilot (Doreen Ritter and Jennifer Mueller from RBB) and the E-Space Museums Pilot (Monika Hagedorn-Saupe from SPK, Sarah Wassermann from MEK and Beatrix Lehmann from Museumsmedien) had a meeting concerning their cooperation, at the Institute for Museums Research in Berlin.

It was the first meeting to strengthen a cooperation. The partners pointed out how they can benefit from each other, and how such a cooperation can support the goals of the Europeana Space project.

An interesting and useful link could be the use of RBB contents for the two Museums subpilots Toolbox and Blinkster App. Requests concerning topics and contents (television, radio or online broadcasts) will be prepared. Vice versa the use and potential use cases of the Toolbox for the RBB were discussed.

With regard to the Museums hackathon in March 2016, the partners will discuss different scenarios of a cooperation.
