The CloudforEurope Project has been launched. Over the course of three years the project will build trust in European cloud computing by applying pre-commercial procurement (PCP) as an instrument for industry innovation and simultaneously enhance cloud adoption in the public sector.

The Europeana 1989 project has launched in Warsaw, Poland with its first collection day and a round table debate on the importance of preserving the experiences and memories of ordinary people involved in the struggle for freedom. Further collection days will be held this month in Poznan and Gdansk. 

Europeana has launched its first free iPad app called 'Europeana Open Culture' enabling users to explore beautiful collections from some of Europe's major institutions, and allowing them to share and comment on them.

More than 2,200 institutions contribute content and/or technology solutions to Europeana.
