“It is a privilege to work at CESSDA. When I started in 2017, I already knew that there would be gemstones to discover in working for a social data infrastructure. Some had to be polished first and in 2018 we could go live with the CESSDA Data Catalogue, successfully ensure our European coverage, launch a new website and provide excellent training. More gems will come over the next few years too.” - Ron Dekker, CESSDA Director

“Social scientists set standards for data exchange that long preceded the FAIR Data principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) and developed good practices for research data management long before research funders and other organisations started to require data management plans. One of CESSDA successes of 2018 was the bringing together of expertise in this area in the form of an online expert guide for data management.” - Peter Doorn, Chair of the General Assembly and Director of DANS

The CESSDA Annual Report 2018 covers activities and results of all of our working groups (training, trust, tools and services, technical) as well as our widening activities, communications, projects, governance and management, and presents the financial information of the past year.
