CESSDA SaW: WP3 Meeting in Ljubljana

Start: Jan. 25, 2016
End: Jan. 26, 2016
Place: Ljubljana
Organizer: ADP - Arhiv družboslovnih podatkov
The primary ambition of the project Strengthening and widening the European infrastructure for social science data archives (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, which is capable of supporting the research needs of the next generation of social scientists wherever in Europe they may be, or beyond.

The overall objective of WP3 is to deliver a state of play evaluation of social science data archives and services in Europe, identifying gaps and bottlenecks in existing services, and produce national development plans to close the gaps and overcome present barriers.

The present situation will be described and analysed against a development model that specifies the minimum requirements for establishing and operating CESSDA services for the social sciences and provides a common framework for evaluation of compliance.
