The ambition of the first two cycles (2010–2019) of the project European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) was to enable new trans-national Holocaust research by overcoming the existing widespread dispersal and fragmentation of archival sources and expertise and to ease the application of methods of trans-national research.
In February 2020, a second extension of the project was granted. EHRI-3’s general objective follows the line(s) of EHRI-1/2 and intends to substantially and sustainably advance the integration and opening up of existing Holocaust archives and collections by

  • enhancing EHRI’s digital infrastructure and services;
  • networking new research and archival communities;
  • (expanding EHRI’s access programmes and user bases;
  • undertaking localisation and capacity building activities; and
  • establishing new trans-national thematic layers across the integrated data content.


VWI will be active in four work packages, thus work on a substantial advancement of the EHRI Online Portal, especially focussing on the EHRI-Document-Blog, working on a dashboard that allow tracing of trans-national actors and cross-border processes across integrated date content as well as building up a regional data integration hubs.
Again, VWI will participate in the Workpackage Transnational Access and host EHRI-Fellows. To honour the memory of EHRI’s first project director, Conny Kristel, the trans-national access provided by
EHRI are now called „Conny Kristel EHRI Fellowships“.
