Trust and understanding

The DARIAH EU Working Group Sustainable Publishing of Metadata organized a workshop in collaboration with the State Archives of Belgium, Kazerne Dossin, KU Leuven and the FWO on the 14th and 15th of May 2018. The objectives of this workshop and the publication of its proceedings were to address the various aspects of the challenges regarding the sharing and preserving of metadata, to provide a state of affairs with the recent developments in this respect at international level, to share this information regarding sustainability and interoperability and to work collaborative on solutions for common problems. In this respect, this publication can be considered as a first step toward the creation of a lasting bond between institutions and research infrastructures that play a key role in this research domain. The various members of this working group are closely involved in one or more European research infrastructure projects such as Archives Portal Europe (APEF), European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI), European Research Infrastructure for Language Resources and Technology (CLARIN), Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) and Europeana.
