Training Working Group

About the CESSDA Training Working Group

Currently, the CESSDA Training Working Group has members from most CESSDA Service Providers.

Our goals are to:

  • foster data sharing and to ensure well-trained researchers in data management and data use;
  • ensure the excellence of data professionals and staff in all CESSDA Services Providers;
  • promote state of the art use of the curated data for research and policy purposes;
  • actively contribute to the promotion and adoption throughout the social sciences community.

To do so, we:

  • train trainers, data producers and users as well as data professionals and CESSDA Service Providers staff in research data management,
  • data discovery, harmonisation and use as well as in digital preservation, data archiving and CESSDA tools and services;
  • design and deliver training materials to enable self-training;
  • contribute to the development of standards and best-practise guidelines in data curation, data management, data discovery and use.
