The ACDH is a cooperation partner in PARTHENOS, a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 framework, which started in May 2015. The project is coordinated by Franco Niccolucci (PIN, Italy) and carried out by 15 partners. The ACDH is particularly involved in the work packages on ‘Interoperability and Semantics’ as well as on ‘Services and Tools’, leading the task ‘Resource Discovery Tools’. In addition, the ACDH contributes to the work packages on ‘Community Involvement and Requirements’, ‘Common Policies and Implementation Strategies’, and ‘Standardization’ and also participates in dissemination activities.

PARTHENOS has produced several reports with contributions from the ACDH, among them the following deliverables:

As a first major project output, PARTHENOS has recently launched the PARTHENOS Training Suite, a collection of material to support training in digital research infrastructures. This site provides training modules and resources in digital humanities and research infrastructures from PARTHENOS and associated projects. The site can be used by both learners and trainers alike.
