DARIAH publishes the DARIAH Working Groups Policy Statement 2019, a joint document produced by the Chief Integration Office in collaboration with the Board of Directors, VCC Heads and the DARIAH Coordination Office. It describes the role of the Working Groups (WGs) in DARIAH, the framework in which they function, their context and lifecycle. It aims to clarify the concepts and procedures around the Working Groups both for existing ones and for interested parties willing to start or join a working group.
As Working Groups are assigned to Virtual Competence Centres (VCCs) and coordinated by means of the Joint Research Committee (JRC), the document starts with an overview of the relationship of WGs, VCCs and the JRC and their location in the DARIAH governance structure. It further details the role and function of DARIAH VCCs with reference to the DARIAH Internal Rules of Procedure 2018. The central part of the document is devoted to the life cycle of Working Groups and matters of communication and coordination.
This is a live document that will be updated following changes in the status or needs of the Working Groups.
