|HELDIG - Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities|
HELDIG is a Finnish research network and infrastructure for solving research problems in humanities and social sciences with novel computational methods, and for studying digitalization as a phenomenon. HELDIG also supports education in Digital Humanities and application development. Initiated as a major strategic profiling initiative at the University of Helsinki, the goal is to form an ecosystem that fosters collaboration between academic research groups, memory organisations, companies, and the general public.
SeCo represented Aalto University in planning HELDIG, and SeCo director Eero Hyvönen was invited to become the first director of HELDIG in August 2016. The centre started its operations officially by arranging the HELDIG Kick-off Symposium.
