Definitely. We've had a fair bit of contact with Europeana (in
particular the legal/licensing WP). The work on public domain charter
puts them a good position to promote the benefits of open data for
cultural heritage organisations:


Perhaps we could develop a brief background document (e.g. explaining
benefits in this domain) + basic set of principles (e.g. based on
opendefinition.org). We did this with our Working Group on Open Data
in Science, and won an award for it! ;-)


If there is interest in this perhaps we could start hacking on a first draft?

(Alexandra: agreed these should be truly inclusive of different
cultural heritage organisations -- perhaps we should use some good
examples to illustrate this...)

All the best,
