The scientific objective of this 4-year project is to exploit the synergies among three infrastructures (ESS, SHARE, CESSDA) to their fullest extent and to leverage these synergies to influence the still rather fragmented landscape of smaller infrastructures.
Europe is facing huge socio-economic challenges: an economic crisis with a young generation in search of jobs, population ageing potentially straining inclusion and innovation of our societies, climate change with its pressures to redesign energy, transport and housing patterns, just to name some of the most urgent “Grand Challenges”.
Synergies for Europe's Research Infrastructures in the Social Sciences (SERISS) brings together three research infrastructures in the social sciences: the European Social Survey (ESS), the Survey for Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) and the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA). Also involved in SERISS are non-ESFRI research infrastructures: Generations and Gender Programme (GGP); European Values Survey (EVS) and the Wage Indicator Survey (WageIndicator.org).
The overarching objective of this project is to support the Union, the European Commission and the Member States to tackle these challenges with a solid base of socioeconomic evidence.
The scientific objective of this project is to exploit the synergies among these three infrastructures to their fullest extent and to leverage these synergies to influence the still rather fragmented landscape of smaller infrastructures.
The Agreement entered into force on 1 July 2015.
The duration of the action will be 48 months.

Participants: FORS (lead), Analitika, Centar za društvena istraživanja (BIH), CPC, Centre for Political Change (Kosovo), Institute for Democracy and Mediation (Albania), Institute of Economic Sciences (Serbia).
The objective of the CMM project is to develop a standardized metadata design and practice for CESSDA. The outcome will be Metadata Standards Portfolio that will support resource discovery and question banks. The Portfolio will include a DDI-compliant core metadata model and controlled vocabularies for relevant metadata fields.
The CMM project is part of the CESSDA Work Plan Task program and its objective is to develop a standardized metadata design and practice for CESSDA.
The project plans to develop, promote and implement a standardized metadata design, content and practice for all CESSDA data assets. The result will be the CESSDA Metadata Standards Portfolio Version 1 that will become the standard for all Service Providers within CESSDA. It will encompass support for resource discovery, question banks, preservation and data access and help all Service Providers achieve the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) certification requirements related to metadata issues.
The Portfolio will be built mainly upon the DDI-Lifecycle standard, but it will also include elements from other relevant standards where appropriate. The model will be platform independent and designed in a way that enables the adoption of the Portfolio for past, present, and future CESSDA data assets. The Portfolio will also contain CESSDA Controlled Vocabularies for relevant metadata fields, taking into account and supporting the DDI CVG work. A procedure for extending and updating the Portfolio within CESSDA will be proposed as well.
The project is lead by FSD and the partners are ADP, GESIS, UKDS, DDA, NSD, SND and CASD. The project started in November 2015 and ends in April 2017.
Project Strengthening And Widening The European Infrastructure For Social Science Data Archives has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number. Its aim is to cover all European countries with social science data services, to strengthen the network and to ensure sustainability of its data for the widened network.
The primary ambition of CESSDA SAW is to establish the conditions for, and initiate the movement towards, a seamless social science data archive service for the whole of the European Research Area (ERA), which is capable of supporting the research needs of the next generation of social scientists wherever in Europe they may be, or beyond.
The overarching impact of the project will be to initiate the transformation of the user experience of social science data in the ERA, resulting in a transformation of the evidence and insight available to those tackling the social and economic issues of Europe. The barriers to and the potential value and benefits from membership in CESSDA will be examined in each European country. Furthermore, existing, relevant infrastructures in those countries will also be mapped.Moreover, relevant completed initiatives from past projects will be taking up in this project and used to provide support for achieving membership of the CESSDA research infrastructure (e.g. SERSCIDA, DASISH, DwB).
The widened membership must form a strong network where global best practice is built into the infrastructure of European social science and research. Furthermore, the visibility of the CESSDA research infrastructure and its importance in providing evidence for policymaking will therefore be greatly enhanced.
Project partnes are: CESSDA AS (coordinator), Charles Beagrie Limited, Ethniko Kentro Koinonikon Erevnon, Tarki Alapitvany, Tartu Ulikool, University College Dublin, National University of Ireland, Dublin, Instituto de Ciencias Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa, Sveuciliste U Zagrebu Filozofski Fakultet, Institut Ekonomskih Nauka, Sociologicky Ustav Slovenskej Akademie Vied.
As a member of CESSDA, the ADP cooperates in the CESSDA SaW project.
The focus of the SEEDS project is on preparing partners institutions to establish new data services in their countries, namely Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, and Macedonia.
The SEEDS project (South-Eastern European Data Services) will aim to address the need for new data services in countries where no such infrastructure yet exists. Its primary goal will be to put selected partner research institutions on track to serve as national data services, serving their countries’ research communities by hosting and disseminating large bodies of social science data for secondary analysis. Currently, no national data services exist in most countries of south-eastern Europe, with the notable exceptions of Greece and Romania. SEEDS will be a consortium of interested institutions from south-eastern European countries capable of organizing and running new data services, specifically from the countries of Albania, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia (see table of Partners). With viable new data services in these countries, valuable research data will be saved, preserved, and made available for re-use for years to come.
Project is funded under program SCOPES.
Foster is a two-year project aiming to set in place sustainable mechanisms for EU researchers to FOSTER OPEN SCIENCE in their daily workflow.
Open Access and Open Science principles are an essential part of knowledge creation and sharing. They directly support the researchers need for greater impact, optimum dissemination of research, while also enabling the engagement of citizen scientists and society at large on societal challenges.
This two-year project aims to set in place sustainable mechanisms for EU researchers to FOSTER OPEN SCIENCE in their daily workflow, thus supporting researchers optimizing their research visibility and impact, the adoption of EU open access policies in line with the EU objectives on Responsible Research & Innovation.
Data without Boundaries (DwB) is an international EC FP7 project, whose aim is to support equal and easy access to official microdata for researchers, both on the national as well as the international level.
Slovenian Social Science Data Archives (ADP) were participants in the international Data without Boundaries project (DwB), funded by the European Commission (FP7). The main goal of the project was to support equal and easy national and international access to official microdata for the European Research Area. To achieve that, a harmonized infrastructure data access model was developed, irrespective of national boundaries, yet flexible enough to fit national arrangements and support international cooperation. The emphasis of the project was to manage the across-the-border access to detailed non-anonymised microdata. European Commission assessed that official statistics microdata are under-used for scientific or academic research. The reasons for that, which partners of the project have to overcome together, are national, technical, cultural and legislation barriers.
The project included 12 work packages and was a cooperation of 29 organizations - CESSDA social science data archives, national statistics offices (in cooperation with EUROSTAT), research centers and universities. One of the common goals was to establish a web portal which would include the most important information on the access to microdata in separate European countries. It also includes a wide spectrum of research metadata. Social Science Data Archives were one of the partners of DwB project, actively participating in the Work Package nr. 5 (WP5). One of the goals of WP5 is to prepare a list of available European official statistics microdata and associated metadata. Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SORS) was also a partner of DwB project, participating in Work Packages 3, 6 and 11. As both Slovenian partners are aware of the advantages of cooperation between a governmental organization and an academic organization in this specific field, SORS and ADP decided to increase the cooperation to achieve goals of the DwB project more effectively. The main result of the cooperation should be a more frequent and easier access of researchers to official statistics microdata in Slovenia.
As a part of the project, different events, such as conferences and workshops were organized. Researchers could have also applied for the access to the detailed official statistics microdata in other countries by responding to calls for microdata access. That way this valuable data source could easier be used for more serious research purposes in accordance to the goals of the project.
SERSCIDA is designed as a strategic project for supporting the cooperation and exchange of knowledge between the EU countries associated within the Council of European Social Sciences Data Archives (CESSDA) and the Western Balkan Countries (WBC) in the field of social science data archiving.

Arhiv družboslovnih podatkov (ADP) na Fakulteti za družbene vede, Univerza v Ljubljani, v okviru razpisa za CRP v letih 2010-13 po naročilu Ministrstva za visoko šolstvo, znanost in tehnologijo (MVZT) izvaja projekt »Odprti podatki – Priprava akcijskega načrta za vzpostavitev sistema odprtega dostopa do podatkov iz javno financiranih raziskav v Sloveniji«
Odprt dostop do raziskovalnih podatkov je aktualen zaradi možnosti, ki jih ponujajo sodobne digitalne tehnologije in omrežja. Kot je navedeno v »Načelih in usmeritvah OECD za dostop do javno financiranih raziskovalnih podatkov« (v nadaljevanju »Načela OECD«), bolj odprt dostop do podatkov povečuje raznolikost analiz in presoj, spodbuja nova raziskovanja, omogoča preizkušanje novih ali alternativnih hipotez in metod raziskovanja, proučevanje metod zbiranja podatkov in meritev, spodbuja izobraževanje novih raziskovalcev, omogoča raziskovanje prvotno nepredvidenih tem ter oblikovanje novih podatkovnih serij s kombiniranjem podatkov iz več virov.
K izpolnjevanju Načel OECD, ki predstavljajo izhodišče projekta, se je zavezala tudi Slovenija z nedavno včlanitvijo v OECD. Odprt dostop do podatkov po Načelih OECD pomeni preglednost nad viri raziskovalnih podatkov, ki so nastali v skladu z uveljavljenimi znanstvenimi merili kakovosti in uporabnosti za nadaljnje analize. Raziskovalne podatke je potrebno urediti in opremiti z vsemi potrebnimi dodatnimi informacijami (metapodatki), ki opredeljujejo avtorske, patentne, metodološke in vsebinske podrobnosti o nastanku podatkovnega vira in možnostih nadaljnje uporabe. Odstranjene ovire pri dostopu do podatkov bodo torej zagotovile njihovo širšo uporabo, s tem pa se bo izboljšala znanstvena odličnost in uporabnost rezultatov
Tu se nahajajo javni dokumenti, ki so nastali v okviru projekta ali so kako drugače povezani s projektom.
