NIOD aims to develop innovative infrastructures in cooperation with relevant national and international partners that serve the community of researchers and other users. In 2015 EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure) started an ambitious, new four-year program, coordinated by NIOD. Within EHRI several disciplines work closely together in the development of an innovative research infrastructure for Holocaust research. EHRI aims to sustain its results after the lifetime of the current project (in 2019).
In addition, NIOD has developed a programmaplan Netwerk Oorlogsbronnen (NOB) (Program Plan for Networked War Documentation). The program aims to enhance digital access to distributed World War II collections and to develop basic services enabling intermediaries such as teachers, researchers and museum staff to improve their information provision about the history of the Second World War.
