Documents: What is a document for keep.eu, how can an exact document be found in keep.eu?
Besides information about the projects themselves, keep. eu also contains project documents, i.e., documents produced about projects, either by the partners working on these projects or by the programmes financing them.
The keep.eu team began document collection in 2018, and the first time a document search function came about in keep.eu was in 2020.
Project documents in keep.eu are collected after projects’ end. Interact collects these documents from the websites of the programmes financing the projects, or from the project websites themselves. Programmes can also send to keep.eu documents regarding their projects.
How to search for documents in keep.eu

Additionally, documents are classified – and searchable – by language and by type.
Once all the filters are in place, users can click Search and switch to document view.
The number of listed languages increases with the diversity of document languages stored in the database.
