The AveTransRisk Project Team and several high-profile experts met on Thursday 14 December 2017 in the Digital Humanities Lab (Streatham Campus, University of Exeter). The purpose of this one-day workshop was to review existing Databases and to learn from each other's experiences, including the challenges encountered in designing and developing large-scale Databases.

The workshop was facilitated by Professor Maria Fusaro, the Project's Principal Investigator, who was joined by the eight Senior Visiting Fellows and the four PhD students. Additionally, we welcome University of Exeter academics and members of the Digital Humanities Team. 

We are particularly grateful to Professor Silvia Marzagalli who shared her insights on Navigocorpus and to Dr Lodewijk Petram and Dr Jelle van Lottum who discussed CLARIAH
