CESSDA® Roadshow on COVID-19

The CESSDA® Roadshow series kicks off with a deep dive on COVID-19 on 30 September 2021, highlighting cross-national datasets and surveys in the Data Catalogue (CESSDA DC®) with a practical guide and demo on how to discover them.

Designed as a practical deep dive, the CESSDA® Roadshow on COVID-19 brings together researchers and service providers on how to use and re-use the reservoir of CESSDA® COVID-19 resources for the social sciences, such as national data archives, 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® give a practical guide on data discovery, archiving and publishing routes, as well as European diversity. Interactive discussions bring insights into societal impacts from a CESSDA COVID-19 Ambassador and Eurodoc, the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. The event wraps-up with more interactive discussions on how CESSDA and its service providers are supporting researchers on global challenges.
