The EUscreen portal offers free online access to thousands of items of audiovisual heritage. It brings together clips that provide an insight into the social, cultural, political and economic events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries. As well as chronicling important historical events, the EUscreen portal allows you to explore television programmes that focus on everyday experience. EUscreen is also intended to be a resource for educators, researchers and media professionals searching for new audiovisual content from across Europe.
The EUscreen portal was built by a consortium of European audiovisual archives, public broadcasters, academic and technical partners. It has been funded by the European Commission. The EUscreen project ran from 2009 - 2012 under the FP7 programme. Its successor, EUscreenXL, began in 2013 and runs until 2016 under the CIP ICT-PSP support programme.
