The Universidad de Alcalá (est. 1978) is a public institution with a wide range of educational and research specializations in the Humanities and Sciences and a robust program for Technical and Professional training. Alcalá has a long tradition of excellence in the Humanities and Classics and now places a strong emphasis on innovative technologies such as Robotics and Computing to improve avenues of research and applications development for e-Culture. Drawing on these strengths, we will contribute to Europeana a digitized version of Archivo Epigrafico de Hispania, which includes more than 250,000 records, publications, notes and pictures of ancient inscriptions from Portugal and Spain. We will additionally contribute our software and expertise to describe and link together the datasets that we are bringing to the project.
