DRI was very active at last week's Digital Humanities 2016 conference (DH2016) in the area of Research Data Management for Humanities scholars. Under the sponsorship of RDA Europe, Director Natalie Harrower organised a panel on this topic with key RDM experts in Europe, and co-organised a workshop with RDA-US for digital humanities scholars on applicable RDA outputs. RDA Europe provided travel support for two early career scholars in Europe to attend the workshop. DRI Digital Archivist Rebecca Grant also delivered a paper on the Decade of Centenaries project funded by the Irish Research Council.
