CESSDA Roadshow: COVID-19

Join us on 30 September, 14.00-16.00 CEST! In a world beset by challenges, from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change, the social sciences have never been more important for impartial, evidence-based research and analysis.

The CESSDA™ Roadshow series kicks off with a deep dive on COVID-19, highlighting cross-national datasets and surveys in its Data Catalogue (CESSDA DC™) with a practical guide and demo on how to discover them from UK Data Services.

Designed as a practical deep dive, bringing together service providers and researchers on how to use and re-use the reservoir of CESSDA™ COVID-19 resources for the social sciences, such as national archive data, surveys and gender-related studies. Participants will learn about real-world examples of fast-track publication and collaboration.

Sessions on the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide (CESSDA DMEG™) give a practical guide on data discovery, archiving and publishing routes, as well as European diversity.

The event wraps-up with an interactive discussion on how CESSDA and its service providers support researchers on global challenges, where panellists will be joined by Eurodoc, the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers, summing up the main takeaways.
