Digitised Manuscripts to Europeana (DM2E) is a European Commission funded project with two primary aims:

  • To enable as many content providers as possible to get their data into Europeana
  • To stimulate the creation of new tools and services for re-use of Europeana data in the Digital Humanities
The project is adopting and further developing Pundit to enable scholars to augment, via semantic annotations, cultural objects coming from Europeana LOD version and from other sources on the web of data.
