THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest Academic honour in Ireland.

DRI is the Irish partner in Europeana’s Common Culture Project

23 September 2019

Building on DRI's mission to preserve and provide sustained access to Ireland’s digital heritage.

Europeana is a digital platform that allows European institutions to reach a wider audience by sharing their social and cultural heritage online. It aims to democratise culture by allowing content to be used and reused for enjoyment, research and education. Irish content on Europeana can also be viewed and shared through inclusion in Europeana’s blogs, galleries and exhibitions.

DRI is the Irish partner in Europeana’s Common Culture Project, which aims to improve the quality of up to four million records that have been provided by national aggregators to the Europeana platform. The project started on 1 January 2019 and will run until 30 June 2020. In the coming months DRI will be working with our members to identify suitable collections to contribute to Europeana. For more information on this work in enhancing and sharing Ireland's digital content for a wider audience, visit the DRI blog
