Croatia in the European Consortium for Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities
27th January 2016
IEF, as the national coordinating institution for DARIAH-ERIC in Croatia, is currently working on expanding the network of partners and providing a solid foundation for the development of digital infrastructure for the arts and humanities. On Tuesday, 15 December 2015, in the IEF a public panel was held, called DARIAH-HR: Croatia in the European Consortium for Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities. In the panel, alongside the national coordinator Ph. D. Koraljka Kuzman Šlogar, there was also an exposition by Ph. D. Tvrtko Zebec who presented the VCC2 group in which he represents Croatia.
The panel gathered existing members of the DARIAH-HR community but also the representatives of a number of potential new partner organizations from throughout Croatia and presented the activities and future plans of the DARIAH-EU and DARIAH-HR consortiums. Fruitful discussions and positive reactions after the presentations, as well as a significant number of letters that have recently arrived from various scientific research institutions and cultural institutions as a response to our invitation to join the consortium, testify to the fact that, over the past two years, the image and recognition of digital humanities greatly changed, which subsequently greatly increased DARIAH-HR community, combining many disciplines of humanities and the arts.
