How it works: The idea of an evolving network
The objectives of the DARIAH-CY members is to contribute to the creation, preservation and sharing of digital services and resources, to benefit from a common core of assets and expertise and to promote the practices of sharing open data and services.
The idea of an evolving network lies on the DARIAH-EU notion of open participation for everyone willing to contribute and support digital research for arts and humanities.
