The Research & Development Team aims for innovation in research methodology in the humanities.
R&D builds prototypes to demonstrate that a new/proposed approach is actually viable, putting emphasis on data models and methods that support the richness of the humanities datasets, and the complexities of the use cases.
Multidisciplinary cooperation, both inside the team and with researchers from Huygens ING and elsewhere, provides experimental solutions for problems experienced by researchers.
These solutions are made available as open source prototypes or in academic publications and presentations shared with the research community and may eventually be integrated into Digital Infrastructure’s products.
The Research & Development Team’s work currently encompasses three themes, which can be continued or supplemented in line with developments in the humanities. Digital Infrastructure has had a Research & Development Team since 2015.
