In January 2016 the Gerda Henkel Foundation created its own project for the digital publication of projects financed by the foundation. The Kibyratis-project is the pilot project for this initiative.
Background of the project
Since 2016 the Kibyratis-project has been working on publishing the results from the field seasons 2008–2014 and various research data simultaneously with the printed publication with the support of the Gerda Henkel Foundation in Düsseldorf. A separate foundation project was launched for this and the Kibyratis-project is serving as pilot. The architecture of the online-platform was developed together with the company PLEXGROUP from Berlin on a server provided by the Gerda Henkel Foundation and is subject to continual adjustments so that the publication project has an experimental character.
