ATHENA is a European network within the e-Contentplus programme which aims at bringing together cultural content from Museums and Archives across Europe with a view to make it available in the European Digital Library EUROPEANA.
The Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism (Directorate of the National Archive of Monuments and Directorate of Informatics & Telecommunications), is the coordinator of the digital content. The technical partner in charge is the National Technical University of Athens (Ethniko Metsovio Polytechnio).
The aim of this effort is to establish a mechanism for the continuous support and enrichment of the EUROPEANA network, in order to achieve the steady upgrading of the national participation and promotion of Greek cultural heritage at both European and international levels.
