A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
Impact Lite Training & Community Building Taskforce
This Task Force builds further on the outcomes of the original Impact Lite Task Force and aims to develop an Impact Lite methodology and to make this an interactive learning experience.
Copyright Office Hours
The Europeana Copyright Community’s Copyright office hours offer you a space to ask questions about copyright and digital cultural heritage, get inspired by other approaches and share your knowledge. Between March 2023 and January 2024, the Copyright Community Steering Group will host a series of copyright and policy office hours. These sessions provide space for discussion and knowledge exchange on different facets of copyright, including open licensing, re-use, and digital cultural heritage.You can find more information about the Office Hours' program for 2023 on the website of Europeana.

The conceptual framework proposes a new perspective, supported by a large collection of literature highlighting the importance of designing for the impact that digital active cultural participation can have on participants in a wide spectrum of psycho-social, environmental and innovation areas.

Its goal is to further the democratic and community-focused digital transformation of CHIs, and to support access to, and the reusability of, digital cultural heritage.
Guidelines for CHIs Digital Transformation
This series of resources provide digital transformation guidelines for cultural heritage institutions (CHIs). They situate digital transformation in the context of opening up GLAM collections, inspired by the work at Europeana Foundation, the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and the Europeana Network Association. They are based on an in-depth review of the state-of-the-art in self-assessment instruments for heritage institutions, of which the inDICEs self-assessment tool is a further evolution, taken on board insights and lessons learned from the COVID-19 crisis.
The proposed guidelines are centered around four themes: Digital...
The information on copyrights is vast, complex and fragmented and especially challenging when it is addressed by non-experts. At inDICEs a vast research has been conducted to scope the legal framework that is relevant for working with digital cultural heritage. Understandably, the theoretical outcomes of this research would be too overwhelming for heritage professionals to master and analyse. With this Copyright Chart output we are making an effort to structuralise our findings, link them to existing resources on copyright in the cultural sector and provide a basic guidance for heritage professionals where to look when dea...
