Strengthening and widening the European infrastructure for social science data archives

Team: Erdal Baran, Dimitar Dimitrov, Ute Koch, Claus-Peter Klas, N.N. (WTS), Jana Meichsner (CSS), Tanja Friedrich, Sebastian Netscher, Anna Schwickerath (DAS)
Leader: Ivana Versic (CESSDA AS)
Scientific unit: Data Archive for the Social Sciences (DAS)


The primary ambition is to establish the conditions for, and initiate the movement towards, a seamless social science data archive service for the whole of the European Research Area (ERA), which is capable of supporting the research needs of the next generation of social scientists wherever in Europe they may be, or beyond. The overarching impact of the project will be to initiate the transformation of the user experience of social science data in the ERA, resulting in a transformation of the evidence and insight available to those tackling the social and economic issues of Europe.
