In August 2017, DARIAH-EU launched a call for funding directed to the Working Groups. The funding allocated under this scheme was intended to support the activities of the established DARIAH Working Groups, by offering them practical support for their programs, encouraging innovative ideas, building up capacity to suggest new services or help to develop and sustain existing ones. This call awarded 12 Working Groups with funding to develop their suggested projects in the course of a year (2017-2018).
Here’s an overview of the funded projects:
|WG Digital Methods and Practices Observatory (DIMPO)||Digital humanities work in focus: multiple case studies of research projects across Europe|
|WG Sustainable Publishing of (meta) data||Trust and Understanding: the value of metadata in a digitally joined-up world|
|WG Lexical Resources||Sustaining TEI-Lex|
|WG Image Science and Media Art Research||DARIAH Digital Art, Science, and Technology Institution Network (DARIAH-DASTIN)|
|WG Federated Identity Management for DARIAH||2nd DARIAH AAI Service Provider Workshop|
|WG Impact Factors and Success Criteria||Measuring Change in DH: Workshop on Impact Factors and Success Criteria|
|WG Thesaurus Maintenance||Setting-up e-infrastructure for collaborative work on thesaurus integration|
|WG DH Course Registry||Metadata-thon: taking the DH Course Registry to the next level|
|WG Ethics and Legality in the Digital Arts and Humanities||Open Licensing, Ethics and Scholarly Conduct in DH|
|WG Text and Data Analytics||DARIAH-EU Workshop on “Distant Reading in Literary Texts”|
|WG Women in History||A new NEWW tool: trying, testing, teaching|
|WG Community Engagement||Engaging Research Communities Beyond DARIAH|
Many of the funded projects sought to organize workshops in order to gather data (e.g. the WG DH Course Registry or the WG Women in History) while other projects aimed to advance knowledge in their respective fields (e.g. the WG on Impact or the WG Sustainable Publishing of Metadata), whose results are to be published in peer review journals. Other Working Groups aimed through their projects to reflect on the role of DARIAH as an infrastructure and to provide guidance in relation to topics such as community building (e.g. the WG Community Engagement) as well as Open Licensing, Ethics and Scholarly Conduct in DH (e.g. the WG ELDAH).
Working Groups Stories will be published on Wednesdays to feature each of these 12 projects and give an overview of their outcomes, highlight the services and activities that have been developed thanks to this financial contribution.
