The final call for applications is open!  You should complete your application and return it to ARIADNE.

We welcome applications from individuals with a scientific interest and ability to benefit from training in archaeological research data management. Click here for information about how to apply.

Sponsorship is available up to 1000 euros per participant (to cover the cost of travel and accommodation) plus a tuition fee waiver. Bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, according to the procedure described in the application pack and eligibility criteria below, and based upon the quality of the applicant, their proposed project, and their personal statement.

Individual training: Mapping existing datasets to CIDOC-CRM (PIN)

Organizer: PIN; Venue: Prato, Italy.

Period: Individual access will be provided for a week until December 2016. Small groups working on the same project are welcome.

Content: The goal is to enable researchers and professionals:

  • to map their datasets to the CIDOC CRM standard to enable integration into wider frameworks such as ARIADNE. The transnational access will provide a summary background to the CIDOC CRM, show some case studies and some frequently used templates (e.g. for chronology, authorship, locations, etc.); time will be dedicated to developing the mappings of participants’ case studies under the supervision of specialists.
  • to design the structure of archaeological datasets containing scientific data (e.g. from archaeometallurgy, archaeobotany, dating methods, human remains, etc.), or to map existing ones to enable integration in wider frameworks for archaeological datasets. The transnational access will include provisions for specific data formats as required by the technologies and experiments; related information such as location, chronology, authors, technology and equipment used, etc.  After an introduction, the activity will focus on the case study proposed by the participant.
