He is involved in the CARARE – Connecting archaeology and architecture in Europeana project, working on the specification, design and implementation of a repository-based architecture for the management, enrichment and curation of site, building and archaeological feature-related metadata for Europeana harvesting and dissemination. He also worked recently in Preparing DARIAH: The digital research infrastructure for the arts and humanities, developing a model for representing scholarly information practice of humanities researchers, and he is currently investigating scholarly information requirements for the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure project.
