The EUscreen portal was built by a consortium of European audiovisual archives. Support came through two projects funded by the European Commission: the EUscreen project ran from 2009 - 2012. Its successor, EUscreenXL, began in 2013 and runs until 2016 under the CIP ICT-PSP support programme.
The main objective of the project is to aggregate a comprehensive amount of professional audiovisual content. A selection of archive materials not available elsewhere is made public through the EUscreen portal.
Besides developing the portal, EUscreenXL acts as the pan-European aggregator in the audiovisual domain for Europeana, bringing together major European broadcasters and actively reaching out to audiovisual archives. As the audiovisual content aggregator for Europeana, the materials in EUscreen are connected to an online collection of millions of digitized items from European museums, libraries and archives.
