The PARTHENOS project aimed to strengthen the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields through a thematic cluster of European Research Infrastructures, integrating initiatives, e-infrastructures and other world-class infrastructures, and building bridges between different, although tightly, interrelated fields. The project aimed to achieve this objective through the definition and support of common standards, the coordination of joint activities, the harmonisation of policy definition and implementation, and the development of pooled services and of shared solutions to the same problems.

The project provided common solutions for the provision for cross-discipline data use and re-use, the implementation of common AAA (authentication, authorisation, access) and data curation policies; IPR management, also addressing sensitive data and privacy issues; standardisation and interoperability; common tools for data-oriented services such as resource discovery, search services, quality assessment of metadata, annotation of sources; communication activities, and joint training activities. Built around two ERICs from the Humanities and Arts sector, DARIAH and CLARIN, and involving all the relevant Integrating activities projects, PARTHENOS has delivered guidelines, standards, methods, services and tools to be used by its partners and all the research community.
