DaSCH - Swiss National Data and Service Center for the Humanities

We provide expertise in
Research Data Management and Long-Term Preservation

The National DARIAH consortium officially joined DARIAH ERIC as an Observer on January 1, 2021. Previously, Switzerland had participated in DARIAH through a number of institutions that joined with the status of Cooperating Partners. In November 2020, the General Assembly of DARIAH ERIC voted unanimously to accept Switzerland’s application for the status of Observer in the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities for a three-year period.

DARIAH’s activities in Switzerland are coordinated by DaSCH, where the DARIAH-CH Coordination Office is located. Dr. Rita Gautschy, Director of DaSCH, acts as National Coordinator for DARIAH, while Dr. Cristina Grisot, National Coordination Officer for DARIAH, manages the DARIAH requests for Switzerland.

We offer several tools to guide and help researchers through the different phases of their project.
