Introductory Remarks by Toma Tasovac

We are in a historic building, in which the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, the precursor to Yugoslavia, was proclaimed on December 1, 1918. I hope that’s not a bad omen. And I hope that DARIAH-RS will do better than Yugoslavia did.

Nada Popović Perišić

The digital revolution challenges all layers of communication and all types of media.

Ivan Tasovac

Technology without ideas is just a load of junk.

Srđan Verbić

I’d like to congratulate DARIAH Serbia for being recognized at the European level. It’s something that we can all be proud of.

Laurent Romary

We need to put the humanities on the same level as other sciences by bringing them into the digital world.

Toma Tasovac

Digitization is not just a question of technology, but a condition for a culture of memory.
