Identity


The National Infrastructure for Digital Research in the Humanities is implemented by a network of academic institutions, universities and research centers, which is established in order to contribute to the development of research in the Humanities using information technologies. The introduction of information management and digital research methods in the Humanities necessitated this initiative which will facilitate the use of methodological and technological standards, best practices, as well as the exchange of expertise and access to cognitive resources.

The Research Infrastructure Network for the Humanities DYAS was created in 2009 to elaborate a feasibility study entitled “Creating a Research Infrastructure Network for the Humanities”, under the call of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology on “Creating National Research Networks on thematic areas related to the European Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, by ESFRI- European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures”.

In this context the DYAS network contributes to the European Infrastructure DARIAH-EU, which aims to connect national infrastructures and incorporate the results of local activities in a common European framework.
