In the second phase of the project (that started May 2015), EHRI will organise several conferences in different countries for i.a. representatives of archives, research institutions, potential users, relevant industries, and funding agencies including government bodies. Details will be published here.
EHRI First Phase
In the first phase (2010-2014), EHRI (co-)organised four big conferences:
The Presentation of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (Final Event first phase EHRI)
26 March 2015
The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Berlin, Germany
On Thursday 26 March 2015 the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) project presented its results. One of the highlights of the day was the official opening of the EHRI online portal that provides access to Holocaust sources dispersed around Europe and beyond. While the portal is one of the key successes of EHRI, the project has also supported the Holocaust research communities in many other ways. We have organised expert meetings, conferences, fellowships, summer schools and online courses. Several high-ranking European politicians, renowned Holocaust researchers and digital infrastructure experts attended the presentation to discuss EHRI's achievements and to reflect on the impact of EHRI on the future of Holocaust research and memory.
