The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences is a research institute which was set up with the declared intention of fostering the humanities by applying digital methods and tools in a wide range of academic fields. It offers a growing portfolio of services running a repository for digital language resources, hosting and publishing data, developing software and working on establishing a tightly knit network of specialised knowledge centres by offering advice and guidance to the research community.

In their research, the ACDH team is mainly concerned with text- and language-related questions focusing on non-standard and historical linguistic varieties and eLexicography. Current projects investigate technical standards, infrastructure components, semantic technologies and text technological methods. All of these activities are embedded within the European infrastructure consortia: CLARIN-ERIC and DARIAH-EU.
