What is DARIAH-FI?

DARIAH-FI is a new national research infrastructure created for the needs of data-intensive social sciences and humanities (SSH) in Finland. Currently, the best practices are scattered across individual research groups and universities. Our national network prevents overlapping work and encourages synergies inside the Finnish SSH community. In short, we build and share digital tools, datasets and workflows to facilitate high-quality SSH research. Our services will be provided centrally through CSC’s environment to make them as easily accessible as possible. DARIAH-FI aims to become the national node of DARIAH-EU in the near future. By providing all Finnish universities and research institutes full access to the key European resources in digital humanities and computational social sciences, we will offer new opportunities for international collaboration and research breakthroughs!

Why do we need DARIAH-FI?

There are at least three good reasons for national co-operation through DARIAH-FI:

EFFICIENCY

Coordination on a national level helps to avoid duplication of work in individual research teams -> more efficient use of limited resources in data-intensive SSH research.

SUSTAINABILITY

Individual research teams do not have sufficient resources for long-term infrastructure building -> our network builds sustainable solutions for data-intensive SSH research.

FUNDING

We facilitate the spread of digital competences in every Finnish university -> increased chances for winning funding at the highest international level in data-intensive SSH research.

What is the difference between DARIAH-FI, FIN-CLARIN and FIN-CLARIAH?

FIN-CLARIAH is a research infrastructure project funded by the Academy of Finland (2022–2023) that comprises two components, DARIAH-FI and FIN-CLARIN. FIN-CLARIN is a mature infrastructure with a high-quality service model through its online service centre The Language Bank of Finland. This part of the infrastructure keeps integrating common tools and resources for processing language and language-related data. At the same time, national surveys and evidence from research projects have shown a need for infrastructure also supporting other types of data and questions. FIN-CLARIN’s focus on centrally provided resources for language-based research will be complemented by DARIAH-FI’s wider discipline base and bottom-up approach to data and service creation. Beyond collaborating at the boundaries where their missions overlap, both components will share facilities for the management and negotiation of material rights, for technical access, as well as for hosting documentation, tools and services.
