4Memory has the goals of further developing historically oriented scholarship to meet the challenges and opportunities of digitalization, safeguarding the critical functions and social relevance of the historical method and establishing systematic, sustainable links among research, memory and information infrastructures. It has developed a set of overall objectives for its task areas, thus ensuring 4Memory can contribute to the NFDI’s key goals. We have summarized these objectives under the acronym LINKAGE, which, taken together, provide a community-specific agenda for meeting the overall goals of the NFDI.
