Our Researcher-in-residence programme invites early career digital humanities researchers to develop innovative research methods in close collaboration with KB data experts.

Early career digital humanities researchers intending to conduct research with KB data may be eligible for our Researcher-in-residence programme. You will do your own research in the vast data collections of the KB, e.g., historical Dutch newspapers. KB data experts will be on stand-by to help you answer your research questions. This programme was established in 2014.

Collaboration between researchers and the KB Digital Humanities team

Participating in our Researcher-in-residence programme is mutually beneficial to both the researcher and the KB. The researcher can benefit from the knowledge and experience of our KB programmers and collection specialists, while the KB gathers valuable information to improve its services to digital humanities researchers.

Any tools developed in this programme will be made freely available in our KB Lab, thus increasing the benefits to the research community. Researchers-in-residence are also invited to share their experiences on our blog.
