As the scale and complexity of Digital Humanities projects increase and challenges facing researchers and institutions become more pressing, the need for creating and maintaining communities of practice for knowledge transfer, training and exchange of best practices becomes paramount.

Organised with the support of DARIAH-DESIR project and hosted by King's Digital Lab, this advanced training workshop will bring together experts working at the intersection of Digital Humanities and Research Software Engineering for a day of discussions around RSE models, training practices and meaningful exchange of ideas.

Jennifer Edmond, a member of the Board of Directors of Digital Research Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities, will be joining the workshop to talk about the role of DARIAH in supporting DH research and DARIAH's training platforms as a vehicle enabling dissemination of training at all levels of expertise, for sharing and discussing information and establishing best practices in DH in a range of formats.
