What will this webinar cover?

This webinar is dedicated to the phase of the research life cycle “Develop Research Questions”. It will dive into details of the topic of developing research questions with RIs, especially on finding, working with and contributing data to RI collections, using Virtual Research Environments, and tools. It will show successful examples of how Digital Humanities and eHeritage approaches, in cooperation with relevant Research Infrastructures, lead to innovative research methods and questions. It will also exemplify how to successfully involve the broader public in Digital Humanities and eHeritage research (citizen science). This webinar will cross-link to materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners and features “teasers” from several research infrastructures as well as an introduction of the Cultural Heritage Data Reuse Charter.

Learning outcomes:

On successful completion of the Webinar, the participants will be able to:

  • understand how Digital Humanities and eHeritage research infrastructures can be employed successfully in the initial research design
  • have an overview of existing relevant research infrastructures, especially their collections and research communities and how to connect with and through them
  • consider opportunities to involve the broader public in the research design (citizen science).
