The IT department also helps the academy to digitise its research projects, particularly in the humanities. This support extends through all phases of a research project, from providing advice on the digital aspects of research proposals to ensuring the long-term archiving of digital material from completed projects. Employees at the IT department develop solutions for the successful deployment of digital technologies. They also develop dedicated tools such as content management systems and databases for some research projects at the academy. Furthermore, the IT department is responsible for setting up and maintaining the academy website, including dedicated microsites for research projects and the institutional repository.
