Fifth COST-WWIH Training School 18 - 22 February 2013

Objectives of this Training School:

Next to the “normal” objectives of the COST-WWIH Training Schools, this fifth one aimed at preparing the trainees to participate in discussions going on about the Virtual Research Environment which will be developed this year thanks to CLARIN-NL funding for the project COBWWWEB.

During this 5th Training School we continued focusing on and testing the way in which we have started standardizing information to be added on the authors’ and the reception level – through the use of a so-called protocol, developed in the two Think-Tank Meetings which were held in July and September 2012. This protocol has equally been discussed in Working Group 1, and will now be distributed and commented before our further working on it. As usual in all Training Schools, criteria for selecting and handling of sources have also been discussed.

For the first time we also had three “virtual” participants: they had planned to participate but were unable to come for different practical reasons. They were part of the Training School in the sense that like the other Trainees they entered data corresponding to their own research needs, and had the possibility of discussing the work, using e-mail and skype (as much as possible). The communication was not always easy: in a way this also proved that coming physically together and have the permanent exchange with colleagues sitting at the very same table - without any concern about children being ill, etc. - is essential and cannot yet be completely replaced. However for all of us it was an interesting experience.
