Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities

The mission of DARIAH is to enhance and support digitally-enabled research across the humanities and arts. DARIAH aims to develop and maintain an infrastructure in support of ICT-based research practices. 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. The core strategy of DARIAH is to bring together national, regional, and local endeavors to form a cooperative infrastructure where complementaries and new challenges are clearly identified and acted upon.

DARIAH is exploring and applying ICT-based methods and tools to enable new research questions to be asked and old questions to be posed in new ways. One of the main goals of DARIAH is to improve research opportunities and outcomes through linking distributed digital source materials of many kinds. The project partners are willing to build an infrastructure to exchange knowledge, expertise, methodologies, and practices across domains and disciplines.
