The aim of CENDARI is to pilot the implementation of a virtual research infrastructure which will allow scholars to access historical resources across institutional and national boundaries.  At the core of the CENDARI environment are federated archival resources from more than a thousand institutions across Europe and the world. 

The project brings information and computer scientists together with leading historians and existing historical research infrastructures (archives, libraries and other digital projects) to improve the conditions for historical scholarship in Europe, through active response to the impact of the digital age on scholarly and archival practice.
