On 29 November 2013, in the Flemish Parliament in Brussels, the NISE database will be launched, as part of the ODIS2 database. The new infrastructure stands central to NISE.
It will allow for entering, checking and collating data on national and regional movements, as a result of projects, links or unilateral input, leading to a sustained comparative historiography. By developing a shared working‐space, international teams of scholars and heritage institutes can produce explicit and reciprocal surplus value.
At the event, the functionalities and scope of the instrument will be discussed and evaluated, in particular the role it can play in both international scientific programmes and cultural heritage networks. How can the instrument answer present and anticipate on new research needs on the subject? Which possible partners and networks could benefit from using the instrument and how can it be adapted to their specific needs?
A full program and registration module will be provided over the next few weeks.
