We see our role in the EUDAT CDI as a natural continuation of our past involvement and want to help the CDI evolve as a successful collaborative platform that is interesting to both service providers and community organisations”.|
“We are very pleased to welcome CLARIN ERIC as a new member of the EUDAT CDI", says Damien Lecarpentier, who manages the EUDAT CDI collaboration, and he adds "EUDAT wants to see the Research Infrastructures play a key role in the CDI and will work with CLARIN ERIC to better organise their participation in the CDI.
