What is Heldig?

HELDIG – Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities provides a new kind of platform for addressing the challenges of digitalization, based on multi- and interdisciplinary research and collaboration in humanities, social sciences, and computer science. By fostering collaboration and by sharing research infrastructures not only within the University of Helsinki but with other organizations in the Helsinki area and beyond, relevant research problems and data can be found, unnecessary duplicate work can be eliminated, and more resources be targeted to Digital Humanities research and education. HELDIG is funded in 2016–2020 as part of the profiling measures of the Academy of Finland and the University of Helsinki. As part of the activity, eight new professor positions related to Digital Humanities are being filled up in seven faculties of the University of Helsinki.
