This is the third of three reports composing the technology watch of CLARIAH-DE. The aim of all three reports is to give an overview of technological developments relevant to the project and its partners, and to offer recommendations concerning their adaptation within CLARIAH-DE. The first technology watch report discussed digital repository solutions from the perspective of research infrastructures. Simultaneously, an evaluation of current PID solutions was published. The second technology watch report, published as DARIAH-DE Working Paper, discussed certification schemes from the perspective of a humanities research infrastructure. The current report maps the relations of CLARIAH-DE with the European research infrastructure level and takes a more strategic and governance-related perspective, as compared to the other reports. It aims at aggregating an overview of the most relevant projects and initiatives CLARIAH-DE has to be aware of, connects to, or cooperates with for the sake of providing support to its users, i.e. researchers affiliated with the humanities. For the sake of clarity, we decided to arrange the format in a table. The matrix does not claim completeness but covers the most relevant European initiatives for CLARIAH-DE from the perspective of Work Package 4, which is devoted to the technical integration. The matrix reflects the state of March 2021. The authors have selected those aspects they considered relevant or where synergies and integration benefits seemed to be most obvious.
