Digital Scholarship projects
Our current projects using new digital methods and techniques.
The CDS collaborates with researchers and other partners inside and outside the University in projects that explore new technological innovations. In these projects, we build digital collaboration environments that provide researchers with the opportunity to try out new methods and techniques and to facilitate interdisciplinary work.
We list a selection of our current projects on this page; you can read about our concluded projects on a dedicated page.
