About the project

The aim of LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ is to allow for an open-access to digitized data resources in the fields of language technology, art and humanities for a broad research community and for students both in the Czech Republic and in EU and at the same time to obtain access to similar resources available in the pan-European networks CLARIN and DARIAH.  LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ takes part in the international cooperation between infrastructures of a similar type and also directly between the relevant institutions in all branches of humanities and puts an emphasis on digital and interdisciplinary processing methods, including modern methods of machine learning and artificial intelligence. An integral part of LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ activities consists also in an analysis of legal aspects of the use of resources from the domain of humanities with regard to possible legal restrictions concerning authorship rights and to the minimization of the impact of these restrictions on research work.  LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ also offers know-how and provides software tools for the processing of language resources and other digital data. It is also involved in the development of language technologies serving the needs of industry, and provides services, including those concerned with the exploitation of these services in cultural and creative branches of industry.

The LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ project (lm2018101 is fully supported by the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth of the Czech Republic under the programme LM of “large infrastructures”.
