The European Horizon2020-project, European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI), has officially been adopted by the ESFRI Roadmap 2018 (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) to enter the ESFRI ecosystem. This is a first important step in a sustainable future for EHRI after the project ends in 2019.

NIOD has been the coordinator of EHRI since 2010. This European project allows archives concerning the Holocaust in Europe, Israel and the United States to be accessed through the EHRI portal. Furthermore, the many partner institutions organize among other things fellowships, workshops and seminars for researchers.

EHRI was one of six projects that were added to the 2018 ESFRI Roadmap, and the only project in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Our inclusion validates the considerable achievements of the EHRI project so far, and highlights that our mission and activities are seen as strategically important by policy makers. As such it is an important milestone in our endeavours to ensure EHRI’s sustainability beyond 2019, and an important step in establishing EHRI as the permanent home for the transnational integration of Holocaust research and archives.
