Match-making Service

A central goal of HELDIG is to establish and support the collaborative Digital Humanities ecosystem in Finland. A vital component there is to foster cooperation and joint projects between humanists and social scientists (SSH) having important research problems and data, and computer scientists developing methodological means and tools for modelling, data analysis, and problem solving.

Are you looking for a collaborator in the Computer Science camp or vice versa in the SSH camp, and do not know who to contact? For such situations, HELDIG has established a new match-making service:


Send an email there specifying your need, and we will try to help you in finding potential partners within the HELDIG community. Your communications will be treated as confidential. You can also contact directly Eero Hyvönen or Jouni Tuominen.

For a wider visibility, a good option is to use the open HELDIG Facebook Group for such call for partnership announcements of potential general interest.
