Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking Plus (ARIADNEplus) is the extension of the previous ARIADNE Integrating Activity, which successfully integrated archaeological data infrastructures in Europe, indexing in its registry about 2,000,000 datasets. ARIADNEplus will build on the ARIADNE results, extending and supporting the research community that the previous project created and further developing the relationships with key stakeholders such as the most important European archaeological associations, researchers, heritage professionals, national heritage agencies.

The ADS is again acting as Deputy project lead, with particular responsibility for extending and supporting the ARIADNE community, implementing the ARIADNEplus ontology and data infrastructure, and extending it to a broad range of sub-domains. We are also leading a task on good practices in archaeological data management, and providing guidelines and support in repository creation and management, as well as playing a key role in project management and overall quality control.
