The digital transformation of the humanities has been driven since 1949. In Austria, this transformation has received a significant boost since 2015. In various national cooperation projects (HRSM project KONDE) and international infrastructure projects (DARIAH, CLARIN), Austrian universities and cultural heritage institutions have built up specialized competencies that are to be disseminated in the present project. The aim of this project funded by the Austrian Ministry of Education and Research is to establish the methods for digitization and analysis developed in the international DH community in such a way that they can be transferred into the everyday use of research in the humanities and education of young researchers.

The following institutions are collaborating on the project:

  • TU Wien
  • Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna
  • Danube University Krems
  • Austrian Academy of Sciences
  • Austrian National Library
  • Paris Lodron University Salzburg
  • University of Graz (project coordination)
  • University of Innsbruck
  • University of Vienna
