We innovate research
by building sustainable infrastructure
and connecting data, people
and collections
in the humanities

Research

Our research aims for innovation in research methodology in the humanities and focuses on history, ethnology, literature and linguistics, increasingly relying on big data and cutting-edge digital infrastructure.

Data

We make research data accessible, compatible and reusable and optimise it so it lends itself for new research questions and hypotheses.

Collections

Our social-economic history collection is one of the world’s largest and our unique Dutch ethnology and variation linguistics collection is part of Dutch heritage. In collection development we focus increasingly on digital archives and data.

Infrastructure

The Humanities Cluster will create and maintain digital infrastructure that is both innovative and durable, with products and services that meet the wishes of researchers and collection specialists.
