READ (Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents) project: READ is a project funded by the European Commission (H2020-EU. - Development, deployment and operation of ICT-based e-infrastructures). The overall objective of READ is to implement a Virtual Research Environment where archivists, humanities scholars, computer scientists and volunteers are collaborating with the ultimate goal of boosting research, innovation, development and usage of cutting edge technology for the automated recognition, transcription, indexing and enrichment of handwritten archival documents. This Virtual Research Environment will not be built from the ground up, but will benefit from research, tools, data and resources generated in multiple national and EU funded research and development projects and provide a basis for sustaining the network and the technology in the future. Starting: 1/1/2016 Ending: 30/06/2019. https://read.transkribus.eu
