The Forum will focus on the legal frameworks and the research accreditation process for access to national microdata across boundaries.
The European Data Access Forum organized within this context provides a unique opportunity for Data Archives, National statistical offices, other members of the European statistical system and the Research community to work together and find acceptable solutions to overcome the barriers to research using government data, both national and European, in the ERA. The ambition of the Forum is to gather the different communities in equal proportion, also involving in the discussions other important stakeholders such as the national data protection commissioners and research funding councils.
Through a series of presentations, business cases, working sessions and roundtables, the 1st European Data Access Forum will focus mainly on the legal frameworks and the research accreditation process for access to national microdata across boundaries. It will also be the opportunity to share information in the context of the ongoing revision of the European Commission Regulation (EC) N°831/2002 concerning access to European microdata.
Posters, demos and workshops will also offer the possibility to cover more broadly other important issues such as technical and methodological issues about remote access for confidential microdata and metadata standards. They may also give the opportunity for participants to provide information about their organisation and projects, making this event a European Forum for data producers, data providers and data users.
