Noterik won a prize for best practice award in the E-government category during the United Nations World Summit Award for its product ‘Governance Online’. In 2002, Noterik won the ‘TelewerkAspectPrijs’ for its contribution to the development of webcast software for e-learning. In 2003, 2004 and 2005 Noterik was part of the Deloitte Technology FAST50, a group of the 50 fastest growing technological companies in the Netherlands and Europe.

Noterik has developed a platform architecture and implementation tool kit for storing and handling multimedia content that is the basis of Balkan Voices. This has already been implemented in 2005, when Noterik started using it for ‘Living Memories’: an oral history project which was funded by Foundation Het Gebaar. Its main goal was to produce in-depth interviews with former inhabitants of the Dutch colonies, The Dutch Indies, from the 1930s up until 1962. The platform enables storing, elaboration of the content and streaming of the material. Currently it is also used by the Jewish Historical Museum for the elaboration of 5000 hours of the ‘Survivors of the Shoah’ collection. Noterik has participated in various EU-funded projects that address a variety of topics relevant to Balkan Voices (VideoActive, TVBirth, etc.).
