Data Technologies for the Humanities

Technology in the Humanities research

In the field of humanities research, the expansion and use of research infrastructure is experiencing a boom.

Much of this new infrastructure takes the form of technology platforms. Such platforms enable all researchers to access cutting-edge expertise independent of their field of research and technology knowledge.

The event "Data Technologies for the Humanities" will focus on those technology platforms that are particularly suitable for research in the humanities.
In order to gain a practical insight, ongoing projects will be presented by platform users.
