How to join us

The AthenaPlus Consortium is open to collaborate with experts, institutions and other projects who are interested to establish a close cooperation in order to achieve the respective objectives.

Which are the benefits of cooperation?

  • Cooperate with a community operating in the field of Digital Cultural Heritage, which includes representatives of all the key stakeholder groups from 21 EU countries: ministries and responsible government agencies, content providers and aggregators, leading research centres, SMEs.
  • Participate in the discussion of the thematic working groups.
  • Be invited to conferences, international workshops and training courses organised by AthenaPlus.
  • Have access to the AthenaPlus deliverables, technical reports and other materials produced by the project in the frame of the scope of the AthenaPlus initiative.
  • Make use of the AthenaPlus tools and technologies developed during the project.
  • Deliver cultural content to Europeana using the MINT platform implemented for the AthenaPlus project.

Formalisation of cooperation

Cooperation is formalised through a Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) or a Cooperation Agreement.

  • A Memorandum of Understanding may be signed between the AthenaPlus Consortium and another project (Download the template: .doc, 50 kb)
  • A Cooperation Agreement may be signed between the AthenaPlus Consortium and an institution (Download the template: .doc, 66 kb)

From the administrative point of view, the AthenaPlus Project Coordinator signs the Cooperation Agreements and the Memoranda of Understanding on behalf of the Consortium.

After having fixed the terms of the agreements, the new cooperating institution sends two copies of the document to the AthenaPlus project coordinator, containing the data and signatures of the responsible person. After the AthenaPlus coordinator's signature, one copy will be sent back to the new cooperating institution.
