DIOPTRA, The Edmée Leventis Digital Library for Cypriot Culture, is a key resource for APAC work and results. Acquired scientific data are archived in digital knowledge repositories for use in research and innovation activities.
Supported by CyI’s High-Performance Computing facility and developing in research modules that respond to key projects and initiatives, DIOPTRA provides the necessary digital platform and tools to support a broad range of research activities. In direct connection to APAC Labs work, the digital libraries ‘Cypriot Medieval Coins: History and Culture’, the “Pancyprian Gymnasium Digital Library’, the ‘History and Culture of the Cypriot Dress’, ‘Endangered Architectural and Archaeological Heritage in the South-Eastern Mediterranean’, ‘Mediterranean Medieval Graffiti’, to name a few key examples, highlight collaborations with partner heritage authorities, institutions and organizations.
A central priority is the issue of scientific data integration and management, aligned with the European Initiative for Open Science and its related FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) is of paramount importance for the APAC labs. This effort focuses on the organization of data repositories and a data-driven virtual research environment, to be connected and integrated within similar, pan-European structures. It is important to mention here the development of DIGILAB, the digital data research infrastructure of E-RIHS, with APAC Labs leading a team of more than 70 researchers from leading laboratories, research organizations and museums around the world, such as the Smithsonian, the Getty and national facilities in Brazil, Mexico and most European countries. APAC Labs data is also integrated in AriadnePlus, the European Research infrastructure on Archaeological Data, which engages more than 30 Heritage institutions across Europe, the Americas and Asia.
