eHumanities Apply JSC Service Developments
Scientists in the arts and humanities are using e-infrastructures to store and analyse digitalized objects, e.g. of inscriptions or paintings, and to access and share their information and knowledge. The Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH, http://www.dariah.eu) builds up this e-infrastructure for Europe and is part of the ESFRI roadmap (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures). The BMBF-funded project DARIAH-DE coordinates the German contributions to the construction phase of the European e-infrastructure. JSC is providing its broad experience in distributed system design to develop a service framework for the arts and humanities that allows for the registration, analysis, monitoring, and sharing of digital objects.
