The DDS research group's projects
On the occasion of the 150 years' anniversary of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Italy the DDS organised several activities in 2010 and 2011. In 2013 Switzerland hosted the 12th International Conference of Editors of Diplomatic Documents in Geneva. Moreover, the DDS have developed metagrid.ch, a tool to link historical resources. We went «Back to the Future» in 2015 and incorporated the complete first series of the DDS (1848–1945) in the database Dodis. Consequently, subjects, such as the First World War or the construction of the Gotthard railway during the 19th century can now be accessed on Dodis.
