The main objective of the project is to cooperate on creating a virtual infrastructure which will enable a
de-localized community of scholars in humanities to engage in collaborative
research and to publish their results on the Web. Cooperation is organized in three Working Groups (WGs): WG 1: Communities, WG 2: Software, WG 3: Policy. Find out more on the COST Action A32 project site
and the COST Office Action A32
site, where also the Working Plan for
the implementation of the action («Memorandum of Understanding») is available.
