On behalf of the Consortium of Social Science Data Archives, CESSDA ERIC, I am pleased to invite you to the meeting on Strengthening and Widening the infrastructure of social science data archives in the European Research Area.
This meeting is part of continuous efforts to strengthen and widen the CESSDA ERIC community across Europe and beyond.
CESSDA’s mission is to provide a distributed and sustainable research infrastructure and to facilitate teaching and learning in the social sciences. This enables the research community to conduct high-quality research in the social sciences. CESSDA aims to achieve full European coverage by strengthening and widening the European infrastructure of social science data archives.
In the past three years, the efforts have been to expand the participation in CESSDA and to establish the conditions for a network of national social science data archive services for Europe.
CESSDA has been on the ESFRI Roadmap since 2006, and in 2013 it has been pronounced an ESFRI Landmark institution, marking its successful transition from a project into an operational infrastructure. CESSDA has received its ERIC status in 2017.
Presently, 17 European countries are members of CESSDA ERIC, and CESSDA has received a formal application by Serbia to become a member.
The 2nd Widening meeting in 2018 will be focused on practical issues in building CESSDA compliant data services considering technologies, tools, standards, available resources, needs, and gaps.
To contribute to building and expanding the network of social data services, we invite representatives from ministries, research councils and service providers from potential partner countries to the CESSDA meeting:
“Strengthening and Widening of the European Infrastructure of Social Science Data Archives”
Wednesday 14 November and Thursday 15 November 2018
The meeting (including lunch and dinner) is free of charge. Costs for travel and accommodation can be reimbursed upon request.
