What is DIANE?

“DIANE, a tree with many branches”

What are the functions of DIANE?

DIANE has 3 principal functions:

Firstly, DIANE will function as an analytical instrument, built to host individual and collaborative research projects that explore and visualise transnational connections between movements, persons and ideas.

Secondly, it will also grow into a heuristic instrument, helping researchers to identify publications, other researchers with similar interests and relevant (and often less well-known) archives and/or heritage institutions all over Europe

Thirdly, DIANE will feature as an information database on national and regional movements in Europe, that collects data, and connects information on the functioning of national movements and their protagonists.
