Results of the CESSDA SaW project highlighted on European Commission CORDIS website

CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, is the European Commission’s primary public repository and portal for disseminating information on successful EU-funded research projects and their results.

Citing the project coordinator, Ivana Ilijašić Veršić, Chief Operations Officer at CESSDA ERIC, the article presents the main project outcomes.

A new social science data archive service for Europe

The EU-funded CESSDA SAW project is supporting Europe’s next generation of social scientists via a seamless social science data archive service.

To better coordinate the diverse research happening across the European Research Area (ERA), the EU-funded CESSDA SaW project established a seamless social science data archive service. The result is a service capable of supporting the research needs of the next generation of social scientists regardless of where in Europe, or beyond, they are located.

“The project has successfully initiated the transformation of the user experience of social science data in the ERA, with more and more evidence and insight being made available to those tackling social and economic issues of Europe,” says project coordinator Ivana Ilijasic Versic.
