mainzed, Mainz’s center for digitality in the humanities, is an open network of knowledge organisations serving as an umbrella organisation for those whose goal it is to promote and support digital research.
Our key mission is to support the creation of an infrastructure and the transformation of the humanities in the light of the digital age. Mainzed works locally and thinks globally: we set out from concrete problems, but we tie in with developments from the overarching field of digital humanities on an international scale.
Each year, all of mainzed's activities are presented in the annual report available by July 31st.
research on the key questions of the humanities and on the cultural heritage from a digital perspective.
study programmes for students and advanced training opportunities in digital methods primarily aimed at postgraduates and young researchers.
researchers in using digital methods for their research.
mainzed targets researchers at all levels with its offering of a common, persistent platform facilitating exchange, the development of projects and the expansions of the research foci pursued in Mainz. The network is strengthened by organising and realising public events together. We communicate our events through twitter.
A specific Masters Program is a prerequisite for a long-term establishment of digitality in the humanities and cultural studies in Mainz.
To accomplish this, mainzed took the leading role in designing and accrediting a new study program called »Digital methodology in the humanities and cultural studies«, which will be jointly offered by two universities in Mainz.

Besides a research infrastructure, our spectrum spans digital methods in the area of spatial humanities, natural language processing, linguistics, digital edition, music, multimedia and web technologies for a semantic web.
