As a national hub for audio-visual heritage, NISV has two appointed professors and works with researchers-in-residence. Also, the institute collaborates with scholars and collection owners from various disciplines in national and international research projects. With these scholars, the institute co-develops knowledge and technologies to improve access and meaningfully connect collections within and outside the archive. Its aim is to create the best access for scholars researching both historical and contemporary issues on media in relation to society.
Digital Research Infrastructure As one of the national CLARIAH centres, NISV collaborates with Dutch universities, archives and data providers on building and hosting a sustainable digital research infrastructure for the arts and humanities. Based on the lessons of co-development, NISV develops and disseminates knowledge on the practices of digital humanities from a user-, curator- and technical development perspective.
