CLaDA-BG is the Bulgarian national research infrastructure for resources and technologies for linguistic, cultural and historical heritage, integrated within CLARIN EU and DARIAH EU. Its mission is to provide access to the necessary resources and technologies that would support the research in Social Sciences and Humanities (SS&H). Modeling and linking of various types of knowledge and its contexts is crucial for the successful research in the interdisciplinary field of resources and technologies related to language, culture and history.
