NewsEye, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is a research project advancing the state of the art and introducing new concepts, methods and tools for digital humanities by providing enhanced access to historical newspapers for a wide range of users. The consortium consists of eight institutional partners from four European member states (Austria, Finland, France and Germany) spanning four computer science research groups, three national libraries and four humanities research groups.
With the tools and methods created by NewsEye, crucial user groups will be able to investigate views and perspectives on historical events and development and, as a consequence, the project will change the way European digital heritage data is (re)searched, accessed, used and analysed.
