Europeana Network mission The Europeana Network is united by a common cultural mission to work together to improve access to Europes Cultural Heritage in balanced and sustainable ways.

Members of the Europeana Network are asked to subscribe to this broad ambition.
Declaration of independance Asserting that the Europeana Network represents the interests of the community. Asserting that Europeana delivers value to the community rather than taking value from it. Europeana Network can bring together the voices of the community, bring them to the Europeana Board & Executive through the Officers and lobby for the communitys interests.
Relationship with Europeana The Europeana Network is positioned as an independent, grassroots organisation of stakeholders The Europeana Network is collaborating to support the development of the Europeana strategy The Europeana Network Officers will: Work with Europeana Office to set a framework of challenges which are structured around and respond to requirements in the Europeana Business Plan. At least twice annually, solicit the views and opinions of the Europeana Network about the strategic development of Europeana and contribute these views to the discussions of the Europeana Board. Provide a mechanism for mediating dispute and achieving consensus on critical strategic challenges.
Modus operandi Once a year, the Europeana Office will consult the Europeana Network on the content of the follow years Business Plan. The Europeana Network will respond, and the resulting amended plan will be presented to the Europeana Board for comment and approval. Once a year, the Europeana Network Officers will agree a set of strategic questions relating to requirements set out in the Europeana Business Plan Europeana Office will undertake (virtual) surveys to identify key opportunities and concerns from the Europeana Network Europeana Network is encouraged to raise questions/topics they would like Europeana to facilitate in workshops; Officers will articulate results to the Board The task-and-finish groups will work (mainly virtually) to produce an actionable recommendation within a defined timeframe. Officers will report progress each quarter to the Europeana Board The Europeana Network Officers and the Europeana Office will assess the suitability of Europeana Pro to support this work (or agree an alternative, e.g. LinkedIn)
