Description of the TNA offered:

The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to map their datasets to the CIDOC CRM standard, an exercise required to integrate them into a wider framework such as the ARIADNE Infrastructure. The transnational access to PIN’s facilities will provide a summary background of CIDOC CRM, showing some case studies and some frequently used templates (e.g. for chronology, authorship, locations, etc.). The remaining time will be dedicated to developing the mappings of students’ case studies, which they will carry out under the supervision of specialists.
