The DH+ group, headed by dhCenter member Claire Clivaz, fosters collaboration between humanities and bioinformatics experts working on digital humanities research projects. DH+ participates in dhCenter activities, and is involved in the execution of member initiatives such as the MARK16 project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, and the Horizon 2020 project OPERAS-P.

According to a statement published on June 26th, DH+ is joining the European research area “to participate in a lively network of SSH research infrastructures…notably open access and interoperability of the data. It is proud to be the first Swiss OPERAS member, at a time where digitized humanities projects are spreading in this country.”
