Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (CLARIAH) is a distributed research infrastructure for the humanities and the social sciences. CLARIAH will provide researchers with access to large collections of digital data and to innovative and user-friendly applications for the processing of these data. Both the data and applications will be managed in a sustainable manner so that they can also be useful for future researchers: from literary researchers, historians and archaeologists to linguists, speech technologists and media scientists.
The project CLARIAH-CORE (2015-2018) designs, implements and exploits the Dutch parts of the European CLARIN and DARIAH infrastructures. The wishes of future users take centre stage. Workshops, summer schools and demonstrators reveal which research possibilities the available data and tools offer, thereby increasing the involvement of the intended users.
CLARIAH is on the National Roadmap for Large- Scale Scientific Infrastructure drawn up by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). After the CLARIAH-SEED project (2013-2014) the CLARIAH-CORE project was awarded 12.6 million euros.
