The CARARE Best Practice Network was funded under the European Commission’s ICT Policy Support Programme and ran from 1 February 2010 until 31 January 2013. It was designed to involve and support Europe's network of heritage agencies and organisations, archaeological museums and research institutions and specialist digital archives in:
CARARE was one of a suite of projects, funded by the European Commission to help develop Europeana. It played an important role in involving Europe's network of organisations responsible for investigating, protecting, informing and promoting unique archaeological monuments, architecturally important buildings, historic town centres and industrial monuments of World, European and National heritage importance alongside the existing national, regional and local content providers. Their involvement not only brought together a rich diversity of content about the archaeology and architectural heritage but also added 3D and Virtual Reality content to Europeana.
CARARE was co-ordinated by Kulturarvsstyrelsen with MDR Partners.

This deliverable reports on the results of Task 3 (Metadata and vocabularies) of WP2 (Preparing and enabling) concerning crosswalks for the CARARE metadata schema1. Its main objective is to provide the CARARE ingestion system with the information and technical specifications for the transformation of provider‟s metadata to the CARARE schema and, for the interoperability of the later with the Europeana repository and relevant standardized and widely used data models for digital cultural heritage.

This deliverable reports on the design, development and deployment of the software services for the ingestion of cultural content metadata originated from providers that participate in the CARARE project.
This report evaluates the use of the Europeana GIS services for the archaeology/architecture site data sector. These consist of the geo-parsing tool, gazetteer tool, map annotation tool and web mapping tool. The report also looks at the potential for enriching the place-name services in Europeana through monument inventory where geographic data is included.
This report provides an introduction to the tools and services that have been implemented to form the CARARE aggregator, and describes work that has been carried out within the work package 3 of CARARE.
This deliverable describes in detail the live harvesting system for the CARARE project, which allows content providers to provide their content to the CARARE system using a methodology which will allow for regular automated harvests. There are two main components:
a) The CARARE metadata mapping and ingestion system and
b) The CARARE repository.
CARARE developed a map-based search interface based on the Europeana API and geo data from the CARARE repository.
This project deliverable describes how to publish 3D/VR content in the PDF format for uploading to Europeana.

CARARE organised a workshop about Metadata for 3D at the VAST conference, which was held in Paris from 21-24 September 2010.
CARARE organised a workshop at the DISH (Digital Strategies for Heritage) Conference in Rotterdam on the 6-9 December 2011.
CARARE organised an international technical workshop which was held on the island of Mykonos, Greece in May 2012. This report describes the workshop and the field trip to the nearby archaeological site of Delos.
This report draws together work which was carried out in CARARE work packages 5 and 7 and is structured into three main themes that cover a review of sustainability models, the results of the CARARE stakeholder survey on sustainability and the investigation of potential business opportunities relating to 3D Cultural Heritage content.
