The grand vision for the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH, http://www.dariah.eu/
) is to facilitate long-term access to, and use of, all European Arts and Humanities (A+H) digital research data.
The DARIAH infrastructure will be a connected network of people, information, tools, and methodologies for investigating, exploring and supporting work across the broad spectrum of the digital humanities.
Researchers will use DARIAH to:
find and use a wide range of research data from across Europe
exchange knowledge, expertise, methodologies, and practices across domains and disciplines
ensure that they work to accepted standards and follow best practice
experiment and innovate in collaboration with other scholars
The core strategy of DARIAH is to bring together national, regional, and local endeavours to form a cooperative infrastructure where complementarities and new challenges are clearly identified and acted upon.
The GCDH carries the German part of the DARIAH-EU Coordination Office (DCO). The DCO is a virtual organisation, based in three countries: France with the main responsibility of all budgetary and legal coordination, Germany with the focus on the overall coordination and communication and The Netherlands focussing on coordinating DARIAH-EU’s Virtual Competency Centres (VCCs).
DARIAH-DE (http://de.dariah.eu/) is the German contribution to DARIAH-EU, funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research.
The GCDH participates in Work Package 2, Research and Teaching, where it is coordinating the design of a blueprint for the development of a Virtual Research Environment for the Arts and Humanities. POSTER
