What to Expect from EHRI in 2019


2018 was an eventful year for the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI). The 24 partners within the consortium worked hard and great milestones were reached, such as the integration of the 2,000th archival institution into the EHRI Portal and over 100 EHRI fellows that were invited to stay at one of the partner institutions during the last project period. Important highlights were also the Honorary Mention that EHRI received at the Prix Ars Electronica 2018 and last but not least our inclusion on the ESFRI (the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) Roadmap, which puts EHRI on its way to becoming a permanent organisation.

2,000th Archival Institution Integrated into the EHRI Portal
