Europeana Food and Drink Content
Europeana Food and Drink was a project funded by the European Commission under the CIP ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) that aims at promoting the wider re-use of the digital resources available through Europeana. Focusing on the rich and vibrant European food and drink culture and heritage, Europeana Food and Drink aimed to engage the general public, creative industries, cultural heritage organisations and the food and drink industries in creating, sharing, learning and making use of food- and drink related content.

Food and Drink Cultural Space on WITH
WITH (http://withculture.eu/) platform aims to increase and enhance the creative industries’ use of online collections of digital cultural content (Europeana, DPLA, DigitalNZ), and facilitate reuse of cultural heritage content by delivering a range of resources to support their engagement. All sectors of the creative industries, from content providers to producers, exhibitors, artists and makers of cultural/creative content, publishers, broadcasters, telecoms and distributors of digital content are addressed.
WITH is available for cultural institutions and organizations, professional users and third party developers in order to easily search for the cultural resources that meet their retrieval criteria so as to collect, use and re-use them to promote innovation and demonstrate the social and economic value of cultural content. This is achieved through the delivery of APIs that facilitate the development of applications based on cultural content.
The latter serve as the basis for continued experimentation and innovation in a series of dedicated hackathons and workshops that are expected to produce new applications and services based on available resources.
WITH also permits the creation of cultural spaces i.e. of virtual spaces where groups of artists, curators and organizations put their thematic cultural collections together.
The Food and Drink space that is based on WP2 Content Base is available at http://with.image.ntua.gr/custom/eufoodanddrink
