Europeana Creative is looking for creative developers, designers, start-ups and other entrepreneurs to RE-use the Europeana collections! The Challenge is to create applications for a range of themes – Natural History Education, History Education, Tourism, Design and Social Media. We are pleased to announce the launch of the first two:our Natural History and History Education Challenges are open NOW!
The Prize for the best creative idea? A hands-on Incubation Support Package provided by the project consortium to bring the product successfully to the market!

Europeana is a database of some 30 million cultural and historical documents, images, sound and video files from Europe’s museums, libraries, galleries and archives. The Europeana API allows you to access to most of the collections and incorporate them into things like apps, games, websites, even creating mash-ups using other sources or APIs. The possibilities are endless!
So if you want to apply or simple team-up with other creative thinkers your ideas together go on http://ecreativeeducation2014.istart.org. Deadline for entries is March 31st, 2014.
Need some inspiration? Europeana Creative has developed some novel Pilot Apps to demonstrate the things you could do with Europeana content and a bit of imagination (e.g. an on-line Game).
