Concept of the Data Competence Centre HERMES - Humanities Education in Research, Data, and Methods

In the conception phase for the establishment of the HERMES Data Competence Centre, the IEG, together with the collaborative partners, is designing learning opportunities, research activities and networking formats to meet the need for education, training and continuing education, practice-oriented consultancy and interdisciplinary networking in the field of research in the humanities and cultural sciences as well as in nearby application-oriented fields of activity (especially in GLAM institutions).
Through the joint establishment of a data competence centre at the interface of innovative digital methods and sustainable data curatorial practice, HERMES functions as a cross-locational network anchored in the federal states of Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate that bundles the existing complementary expertise of the supporting institutions at (real and virtual) teaching, research and networking locations, creates a framework for the innovative application and further development of data science methods in the humanities and cultural studies, and contributes to the establishment of a critical data culture in the participating disciplines.

In the conception phase for the establishment of the data competence centre HERMES 
HERMES will be established as a regionally distributed, coordinated decentralised network at the Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Mainz, Marburg and Trier sites and will be supported by the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, the German National Library, the Academy of Sciences and Literature | Mainz, the Leibniz Institute for European History, the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, the Philipps University of Marburg, the Herder Institute for Historical Research on Eastern Central Europe and the University of Trier.
