DARIAH activities

The formal DARIAH-part of the event will start after lunch on Monday 10 October and will continue until late afternoon on Tuesday 11 October. During this time there will be updates from the DARIAH-EU team, including a ‘Towards a DARIAH Strategic Plan’ workshop where ideas around the development of a data reuse charter will be discussed. Tuesday morning will be dedicated to the DARIAH-EU Working Group activities including lightning talks and a working group marketplace.
