In a second step, the talk tries to discuss possible consequences for the Digital Humanities and options for action in the German academic system. Finally, the presentation addresses basic questions of an intensified Ukrainian-German cooperation in the future. The aim is also to identify needs and forms of cooperation at eye level.
