The New Exploratory Phase in Research on East European Cultures of Dissent (NEP4DISSENT) project is a COST Action (CA 16213) funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union.  The main aim of NEP4DISSENT is to trigger the next discovery phase of the legacy of resistance and dissent in former socialist Europe 1945-1989 by forging a new, reflexive approach and providing a platform for incubating networked, transnational, multidisciplinary and technology-conscious research with creative dissemination capacities.

Working Group 5: Mediating Research Through Technology will facilitate the knowledge transfer of the advances in digital research environments for the specific needs of the Action’s participants. It will include both researchers with experience in applying digital humanities methodologies and tools and IT professionals.  Together they will map the technologies applicable to various stages of a research project (data capture, processing, exploration and presentation) against the specificity of the digital tools, sources and collection policies, as well as issues of ethics and privacy.  Further details are available here.
