Digital Humanities Research Day
On December 14th at the Lorentz Center in Leiden we will host a digital humanities day to which you are all cordially invited. The purpose of the event is to introduce researchers from the digital humanities to the funding opportunities and partnering possible with NLeSC and with the Lorentz center.
The day will also include discussions on how NLeSC should fund humanities initiatives in the future, discussion on areas to focus activities and time to showcase our current humanities project portfolio. The day will include lectures, expert panels, pitches and a keynote presentation.
The Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC) is tasked with funding, coordinating and participating in a collaborative scientific program, working with both academia and industry, to conduct projects developing overarching digital tools and knowledge for the benefit of a broad scientific community. The application of digitally enhanced scientific practices, referred to as eScience, is a fundamental toolbox for all researchers, and NLeSC funds and participates in multidisciplinary projects, with optimized data-handling, efficient computing and big-data analytics at their core.
