CLARIN-D is the German partner of the European infrastructure measure for the humanities and social sciences, CLARIN, founded in 2012 . The acronym stands for "Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure", German  common language data and technological infrastructure . The basic idea is digital voice data (printed matter, audio recordings, interviews, etc.). as well as making tools available for their processing throughout Europe or worldwide.

Organizational structure and funding phases

Like DARIAH-DE , CLARIN-D is organized in a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) and is part of the roadmap of the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).

CLARIN-D currently consists of nine certified centers, each specialized in certain data types / content. The infrastructure project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research .

The first phase (2012–2014) served to implement and build up the network of centers, the second (2014–2016) to develop and expand the technical infrastructure and text corpora with the involvement of the humanities communities. The currently ongoing third phase (2016-2020) deals with dissemination and consolidation. B. with copyright issues and (technical) challenges of multilingualism in Europe and social media data.

There is technical cooperation and institutional links with the DARIAH-DE project. In 2018, both were in the organization of workshops in preparation for the Council for information infrastructures involved excited "National Research Data Infrastructures" (NFDI). In 2019–2021, CLARIN-D and DARIAH-DE will merge their services in a company cooperation to form CLARIAH-DE.



Most of the CLARIN-D offers can be accessed directly via the network's website and used online. This includes services that are provided by all European CLARIN participants together (such as the search for and in international language resources VLO, FCS), as well as those that are offered by CLARIN-D primarily for a German-speaking audience (WebAnno, WebLicht, Legal Helpdesk). In addition, the centers offer individual advice to projects / scientists who are interested in working together, for example on the long-term storage of research (s) data.

The offers include:
