Polish scientists to build EU communication platform

The Digital Humanities Centre at the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences will be one of the contractors chosen to create the TRIPLE platform, aimed at improving communication between scientists from various countries.

The TRIPLE (Targeting Researchers through Innovative Practices and multiLingual Exploration) project was granted EUR 5.6 mln from the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020.

The platform will be created by the international consortium OPERAS, which promotes open communication between researchers who work in the fields of humanities and social sciences.

Under this venture, a multilingual and multicultural platform for both humanities and social sciences will be created. Thanks to it, scientists will be able to exchange information about their activities and projects, as well as to search for scientific materials and research data published in different languages. The creators of the platform hope that it will facilitate the establishment of cooperation between the academic world and non-academic environments.

Work on TRIPLE will last around 3.5 years and will commence in the autumn this year. The venture envisages the involvement of 18 institutions from 12 European countries.
