The PARTHENOS project  recognised that over the past ten years, researchers, institutional leaders and policymakers have begun to speak more and more about infrastructure.

In particular in the humanities, and the digital humanities, the term is used to cover a lot of different projects, resources and approaches.

The modules, which have been released on a rolling basis from late 2016, cover a wide range of awareness levels, requirements and topic areas within the landscape of research infrastructure.
