Research and Education Liaison

The Virtual Competency Centre (VCC) Research and Education Liaison aims to promote and support the use of research data and ICT methods and technologies, including the DARIAH infrastructure. It will act as the primary contact with the A+H research and teaching communities, providing the interface between the DARIAH research infrastructure and researchers  undertaking basic, applied and practiceled research across the A+H. It will seek to understand A+H research practices and processes, and to understand and promote the use and application of ICT enabled methods and tools, with a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary understanding and exchange.

VCC Research and Education will encourage, support and enable research actors to use DARIAH tools and services in their research to assist them in asking new questions and to address old questions in new ways through the use of research data and the application of ICT methods. In so doing, it aims to address a range of people and interests, from established researchers to post graduates to students, as well as different disciplines and domains within and outside of higher education.

In addition to the essential support services for designing and promoting the DARIAH infrastructure, and among other key concepts and components, this VCC contributes a knowledge base which captures and links A+H methods, tools, and projects, and references
digital humanities curricula.


VCC Research and Education is coordinated by Athena Research Centre, Greece and Aarhus University, Denmark.

Responsible heads of VCC Research and Education are Agiatis Benardou (DARIAH-GR) and Marianne Huang (DARIAH-DK).
