In 2017 the Institute joined the project Znameniti.hr, which was launched in 2016 by the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts together with its Library as coordinator, the National and University Library in Zagreb, the Zagreb City Libraries and the State Archive in Varaždin. The project aims at building a thematic portal containing digital material on the leaders of Croatian culture, science, arts and public life from different collection/repositories.
The Institute joined the DARIAH-HR network in 2015, a part of the pan-european Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities, DARIAH-EU, which aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research across the humanities and arts.
Together with the Institute of Art History, the Institute signed a contract in 2015 about the implementation of the project Modern and Contemporary Artist Networks, Art Groups and Art Associations − Organisation and Communication Models of Collaborative Art Practices in the 20th and 21st Century Art, financed by the Croatian Science Foundation. For the project's needs, the Institute will ensure the retrieving and use of the digital formats of the Croatian Biographical Lexicon, the Croatian Encyclopaedia of Art and the Lexicon of Art.
