CLARIAH-VL: Advancing the Open Humanities Service Infrastructure

Project Details


CLARIAH-VL constitutes the Flemish contribution to the European DARIAH (Digital Humanities)
and CLARIN (Computational Linguistics) research infrastructures (ERICs). Building on the work of
these landmark ERICs, CLARIAH-VL will join the efforts of their respective Flemish consortia
towards further development and valorisation of high-quality, modular, user-friendly tools,
resources, and services by and for humanities researchers. The infrastructure brings together 22
research teams representing a range of disciplines from the universities of Ghent, Antwerp,
Leuven and Brussels and the Dutch Language Institute. CLARIAH-VL will continue catering to the
highly diverse and multilingual composition of digital humanities data inherent in European long
term history, culture, environment and society. To facilitate and (semi-)automate as many
aspects of the workflows of humanities researchers as possible, each service component of the
infrastructure will need to take full advantage of the most recent advances in the fields of
machine learning, linked data and semantic technologies especially with regard to digital text and
image analysis..
