  • bring more Chinese collections into Europeana, finding ways to discover and to curate them through annotations and interlinking;
  • exhibit Chinese Cultural Heritage from European content holders and memory institutions, offering critical and participatory review, from historic and contemporary points of view, of experiences of contamination, awesomeness and suggestion;
  • opening cultural connections to China, exploring new economic advantages based on a richer reciprocal knowledge of our culturess.
