Europeana 1914-1918 Centenary Tour Finale Transcribathon

From 27th to 28th November 2018, an international Transcribathon will be held in Brussels as part of the concluding celebrations of the Europeana 1914-1918 Centenary Tour. Hosted at the House of European History, this very special event will bring together winners from previous Transcribathons all across Europe for a spectacular transcription challenge! In teams they will compete against each other in a two-day sprint to transcribe and annotate specially-selected documents.

A jury of renowned historians and digital humanities experts will judge the results of individuals as well as teams in various categories of achievement. Winners will be awarded special prizes from the European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Ms. Mariya Gabriel.

As part of the Europeana 1914-1918 Centenary Tour Finale, the competition will be accompanied by an exciting line-up of presentations, round table discussions, performances and  exhibitions on the theme of commemorating World War One. All parts of the event are open to invited guests and to the general public. Don’t miss out on this massive celebration! More details on the Centenary Tour Finale can be found here.

Tickets for the roundtables and the closing event are free, but due to limited space you will need to reserve your place.
