EAA Round Table: T02S030 Opportunities within the ARIADNE Network

 Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking (ARIADNE) is a four-year EU FP7 Infrastructures funded project, made up of 24 partners across 16 European countries. ARIADNE has the ambitious goal of “bringing together and integrating existing archaeological research data infrastructures, so researchers can use the various distributed datasets and new and powerful technologies as an integral component of the archaeological research methodology”. A fundamental component in meeting this goal is the provision of transnational access to a wide variety of European archaeologists. To realise this, online access opportunities are being developed, but funding will also be provided for on-site training with our technical partners. Please join us for presentations and discussion about the ARIADNE project, including details about our upcoming training programmes. This will be a rare opportunity to work directly with the staff designing the infrastructure, including PIN at the University of Florence at Prato, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Pisa, Athena RC – Digital Curation Unit (DCU) in Maroussi, and Athena RC – Cultural and Technology Institute (CETI) in Xanthi. Technical staff will be on hand to present information about the training (including logistical details and application procedures), to discuss the goals of the project and answer questions.
