Clarin.dk is a Danish IT infrastructure intended for use by humanities scholars. The infrastructure includes digitized research material in the form of written and spoken texts, audio and video records, lexical resources and tools. Part of the resources collected or converted to other formats as part of the project. Other resources developed or collected in other projects and made available to researchers through Clarin.dk. The website is regularly updated with new materials and tools. The vision is to create the humanities researcher's toolbox through the creation of resources with associated tools and integrating resources together in a web-based electronic research environment provided for humanities researchers. Such access to resources and tools will allow scientists unprecedented opportunities and will also help to enhance their ability to participate in European collaborative projects. The Danish CLARIN project will eventually generate better conditions for Danish language technology research and development.
Clarin.dk developed by the Danish CLARIN consortium (Centre for English Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure for the Humanities) for a grant from the Research and Innovation's National Programme for Research Infrastructure. The partners of CLARIN consortium includes eight leading Danish humanities institutions: four universities and four cultural institutions.University of Copenhagen,
