#4A1 - Community and Collaboration - Research Software Engineering in Jordan - The MaDiH (مديح) Project

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

MaDiH (مديح) involves King’s Digital Lab (KDL) / King's College London eResearch, the Hashemite University, the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL), the Department of Antiquities of Jordan, the Jordanian Open Source Association, and the EAMENA project. The project delivers training in Research Software Engineering (RSE) best practice, alongside white papers, a prototype National Data Catalogue, and a prototype National Heritage Portal. Workshops are identifying datasets, held both in Jordan and overseas, to ‘repatriate’ (through federation) data collected in Jordan but held offshore. The project is contributing to the development of Jordan’s digital cultural heritage, identifying key systems, datasets, standards, and policies, and aligning them to government digital infrastructure capabilities and strategies. By defining a robust architecture for digital cultural heritage, informed by RSE best practice, the aim is to assist the Department of Antiquities in their planning processes, help product development teams develop their systems, facilitate the aggregation of valuable datasets held in disparate repositories, and ensure data generated from research activity is properly stored and widely accessible.
