In the months of June and July of 2016 The DEN Foundation, partner of Europeana in the Europeana DSI project, conducted a small comparative research on the cultural content information services available on the Internet.

The goal was to position Europeana within a larger context to better interpret the internal statistics, including those recently made available through the dashboard, and hence assess the overall online performance of Europeana. The Benchmarking report consists of two parts: the benchmarking report as such, and an extensive annex explaining the methodology used to benchmark Europeana against other cultural information services.
