The event is open to the wider public! There is no attendance fee but registration is required (see below).

Please note that prior to the event some meetings of the governing bodies of DARIAH will take place April, 25th at the Centre Marc Bloch.

DARIAH activities
The DARIAH 2017 event is an opportunity for Working Groups, DARIAH related projects, and the governing bodies in DARIAH to meet, present progress and new ideas, exchange experiences, and discuss future challenges.
The event consists of two parts:
1) DARIAH-EU Plenary sessions and
2) parallel sessions with workshops on topics of sustainability of research infrastructures.
The second part is kicked-off by the marketplace where working groups and affiliated DARIAH projects will showcase their research activities.

Additionally, there will be opportunities for colleagues to work together on their DARIAH activities face-to-face, such as Working Group meetings.

A (self-paid) social dinner is organized on Wednesday 26th April at 19:30 in the Eierschale Dahlem.
