Overview of FIN-CLARIAH

FIN-CLARIAH is a research infrastructure for Social Sciences and Humanities that comprises two components, FIN-CLARIN and DARIAH-FI. Taking as its core the well-established best practices developed in the language resource and language research-based FIN-CLARIN, FIN-CLARIAH seeks to significantly broaden the scope of infrastructural support.

FIN-CLARIAH can be described on three levels according to Fig. 1, in which it is the common RI for its two components, which function as the national nodes of the corresponding international RIs. Of these, Finland is already a member of CLARIN ERIC. State membership in DARIAH ERIC can only be achieved by inclusion on the national roadmap. Hence, FIN-CLARIAH offers the Language Bank (Kielipankki) as a national RI service centre for the SSH field based on resources and services in cooperation with its national RI members and collaborators.


The FIN-CLARIAH consortium consists of a group of Finnish universities along with CSC – IT Center for Science and the Institute for the Languages of Finland (Kotus), the National Archives of Finland and the National Library of Finland.

FIN-CLARIAH facilitates the use, refinement, preservation and sharing of research data for the SSH researchers in Finland. The Language Bank of Finland is the collection of centralized services that provides the materials and tools for the research community.
