2014/06/12 by

DARIAH-DE, a project to enhance and support digitally-enabled research across the arts and humanities, has entered its second phase. The BMBF-funded initiative, which was launched in 2011, has secured funding for an additional two years. DARIAH-DE sees participation from 20 German partner institutions, including the Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing Lab at Technische Universität Darmstadt.

DARIAH-DE supports researchers in the social and cultural sciences through the development of information technology. The construction of a sustainable research infrastructure for digital tools and research data, and the development of technologies for teaching and continuing education, enables researchers from different disciplines to collaborate, regardless of where they may be located.

The contribution of UKP to the DARIAH-DE project is the evaluation of big data techniques and big data principles for humanities. Further information on DARIAH-DE can be found on UKP's DARIAH-DE project page and on the central DARIAH-DE website.
