CLARIAH targets three focus areas that represent the most important types of data: text, images, audiovisual material and structured data (databases).
The three focus areas are:
- Socio-economic history
- Media studies
In each area, multidisciplinary teams of researchers, infrastructure specialists and data managers work on curating, enriching and linking together existing data and applications. A supporting work package is used to develop and implement the generic components relevant for all focus areas.
Other disciplines from the humanities and the social sciences are welcome to participate as well. They can contribute their data and applications to CLARIAH and make use of the infrastructure when carrying out their research.
