CLARIN for Researchers

CLARIN for Researchers is a on-line collection of training materials, case studies and expert contacts from the entire CLARIN network that are aimed at researchers and students of all stages who are working in the fields of Digital Humanities and Social Sciences and are interested in analyzing language data and using text processing tools that are available in the CLARIN infrastructure.

CLARIN for Researchers is a joint effort of User Involvement coordinators from all CLARIN member countries that are led by the CLARIN ERIC Director of User Involvement Darja Fišer and Jakob Lenardič. You are welcome to get in touch if you have any questions about the CLARIN resources, tools, on-line training materials or upcoming training events.

Comments and suggestions to improve this page are welcome. Please send us an email.

Videolectures

Since 2016, we have been building an on-line library of talks and tutorials from our training and academic events on the VideoLectures.NET portal, which is an award-winning free and open access educational videolectures repository.

Digital Humanities Course Registry

The DH Course Registry contains a selection of DH courses offered by European academic organizations. The platform for the sharing of information on DH courses has been relaunched as a joint effort of the European research infrastructures CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH-EU. Students, lecturers and researchers can search the database on the basis of disciplines, topographical information (location), ECTS credits or the academic degrees that are awarded. In addition, courses can be searched for using TaDiRAH, a Taxonomy of Digital Research Activities in the Humanities (including labels for techniques and objects) and sub-disciplines from the Social Sciences and the Humanities.
