ARIADNE first call for TNA access in 2015 now open
As part of its Transnational Access (TNA) activities, the ARIADNE project is offering researchers the opportunity to apply to participate in summer schools and individual training visits to carry forwards their own research. For 2015, calls for applications will be opened every three months.

The first 2015 call for applications is now open to 22 March 2015

Researchers are invited to apply to participate in Summer Schools hosted by Consiglio Nazionale Delle Ricerche (Pisa) and the Athena Research Centre (Athens) and for individual training visits hosted by PIN (Prato) and the Athena Research Centre (Xanthi). We welcome applications from individuals with a scientific interest and ability to benefit from training in archaeological research data management.

Sponsorship is available up to 800 euros per participant (to cover the cost of travel and accommodation) plus a tuition fee waiver. Bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, according to the procedure described in the application pack and eligibility criteria below, and based upon the quality of the applicant, their proposed project, and their personal statement. 5-10 bursaries are available from ARIADNE in 2015 for each TNA centre listed below.

ARIADNE Summer Schools are open to all researchers at a tuition fee of 500 euros. A maximum of 20 participants is planned for each summer school.

For full details see:, in summary access is offered at the following centres:

1. Individual training: Mapping existing datasets to CIDOC-CRM (PIN, Prato, Italy)
Period: Access is offered throughout 2015; exact dates by arrangement between the applicants and PIN

Description of the TNA offered:

The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to map their datasets to the CIDOC CRM standard, an exercise required to integrate them in a wider framework such as the ARIADNE one. The transnational access to PIN’s facilities will provide a summary background of CIDOC CRM, showing some case studies and some frequently used templates (e.g. for chronology, authorship, locations, etc.). The remaining time will be dedicated to developing the mappings of students’ case studies, which they will carry out under the supervision of specialists.

2. Summer school: 2D/3D documentation for archaeology (ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy)
Period: 22-26 June 2015

Description of the TNA offered:

The goal is to introduce: (a) the technologies for producing 2D and 3D documentation for archaeological purposes, considering both the small scale (artworks, findings) and the large scale (monuments, sites); and (b) the methodologies for providing visual access to the data gathered. The TNA will provide both lessons (presenting introductions to the techniques) and practical hands-on sessions to test and experiment with the technologies. Participants will be divided in small groups in the latter sessions. Individual work is a primary component of the TNA experience. It is expected that participants will bring research projects or tasks to be accomplished during the Summer School under the supervision and advice of the TNA tutors, and will practice on those case studies.

3. Summer school: Design of archaeological datasets (ISTI-CNR, Pisa, Italy)
Period: 6-10 July, 2015

Content: the course aims at providing students with an introduction to metadata design for archaeological datasets, with perspective content provided as case studies by the students. The school will consist of some introductive lectures followed by hands-on seminars in which the design is developed by the students with the supervision of ISTI experts and then collectively discussed.

4. Individual training: Scientific datasets (Athena RC, Xanthi, Greece)
Duration: 3-5 days Period: April 2015 – November 2015 (limited availability on August)

Description of the TNA offered:

The TNA targets archaeologists (primarily) and scientists with a specific interest in scientific methods available in a specific “theme” of archaeological research and/or archaeologists with a predefined archaeological problem requiring the assistance of scientific methods and data. The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to efficiently create and manage datasets deriving from the use of scientific analytical activity for the documentation of artefacts and the interpretation of archaeological finds.

The topics available for 2015 will be: a) archaeological dating, and b) provenance of ceramic artifacts.

The TNA will provide the necessary facilities, technical know-how and support to get visitors acquainted with scientific methods available to support the archaeological research, and learn how to:
interpret laboratory results / scientific datasets from an archaeological point of view
manage and read behind the data (metadata and paradata)
incorporate laboratory results / scientific datasets into the investigation of an archaeological problem
effectively design archaeological projects that make use of scientific datasets
The Visitor will attend, if it is required, instruction and training sessions on selected methods and as a training exercise, based on the received information, will prepare and execute a “solution” plan for his/her problem or his/her special interest. Upon completion of a visit an “assessment” session will be held to evaluate the outcome of the visit and determine possible required future actions.
An expert–“personal tutor” will be appointed to each visitor that will receive the visitor and provide guidance through his/her entire stay while he will remain available for remote contact and assistance following the visit.

5. Summer school: Emerging digital practices in archaeological research (Athena RC, Athens, Greece)
Period: 21-26 June 2015

Description of the TNA offered:
The goal is to enable researchers and professionals to engage with cutting edge and emerging digital practices of archaeological research, ranging from new methods to capture, organize and curate fieldwork information to new approaches to archaeological interpretation and dissemination, mediated by digital infrastructures. The TNA will provide ca. 20 researchers already engaged to some extent in digitally-enabled work (innovators, early adopters and early majority researchers, in Rogers’ diffusion of innovation model) with a structured format to share, discuss and elaborate innovative research practices and methods.

Format: the TNA will focus on a detailed elaboration of a small number of scenarios or digitally-enabled archaeological research that make use of emerging digital infrastructures, tools and services, put in the context of select methodological sources on digital archaeology, bringing together the research experiences of participants, and leveraging the ARIADNE registry and other information systems, as well as ontological work on understanding archaeological practices and methods. It will combine formal presentations with structured discussion and breakout learner-oriented activities. Invited discussants and presenters will include members of the ARIADNE Special Interest Group on archaeological research methods and practices, collectively possessing significant expertise on digital archaeology, as well as visiting researchers attached to the network of foreign archaeological schools in Greece and neighbouring countries. Participants will be invited to co-author a report, summarizing lessons learned from the summer school, individual contributions, and a futures view on digital archaeology.
