DARIAH Central European Hub workshop

DARIAH is perhaps the world’s largest organisation providing an international infrastructure for digital humanities: its mission is to help researchers in the field of humanities to get acquainted with the most advanced computing tools and methods.

DARIAH’s Horizon 2020 funded project Humanities at Scale promotes the creation of regional hubs within the European Research Area in order to make regional research more visible and encourage international cooperation at a pan-European level.

The Centre for Digital Humanities at ELTE, with the support of DARIAH, initiates a Central European cooperation and organises a public workshop on November 10, 2017, between 10:00-17:00 at the ELTE BTK Institute of History, the Szekfű Gyula Library (1088 Budapest, Múzeum krt. 6-8.)

At the gathering, representatives of leading institutions in digital humanities from Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary talk about local/regional cooperations, the institutional systems, good practices, cooperation opportunities across borders and the benefits of the international infrastructure.
