EU Context

National infrastructure CLaDA-BG is integrated into the two European infrastructures: CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH ERIC.

CLARIN – Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure – is a research infrastructure that was initiated from the vision that all digital language resources and tools from all over Europe and beyond are accessible through a single sign-on online environment for the support of researchers in the humanities and social sciences.
In 2012 CLARIN ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) was established and took up the mission to create and maintain an infrastructure to support the sharing, use and sustainability of language data and tools for research in the humanities and social sciences.

CLaDA-BG is a member of the European CLARIN ERIC infrastructure since the creation of CLARIN ERIC.

DARIAH – the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities – aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research and teaching across the arts and humanities. DARIAH is a network of people, expertise, information, knowledge, content, methods, tools and technologies from its member countries. It develops, maintains and operates an infrastructure in support of ICT-based research practices and sustains researchers in using them to build, analyse and interpret digital resources. By working with communities of practice, DARIAH brings together individual state-of-the-art digital arts and humanities activities and scales their results to a European level. It preserves, provides access to and disseminates research that stems from these collaborations and ensures that best practices, methodological and technical standards are followed.

DARIAH was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) in August 2014.
