The EU FP7-funded project "SERSCIDA" is designed to support cooperation and exchange between the EU countries associated with CESSDA and the Western Balkan Countries (WBC) in the domain of social science data archiving. The project addresses the potential for establishing social science data services that use information-communication technologies for the benefit of scientific research. It aims to produce tangible results and improve the capacities for exchange of knowledge and data collected through research in the social sciences between the European countries and WBC involved - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia. The presentations in this session included the main results from the first stage of SERSCIDA: a mapping of the research, infrastructure, and policy landscapes of these countries, which included online surveys of researchers, interviews with policy makers and funders, as well as round tables that discussed the potential models for future data services, processes for establishing them, and the general future of data services in WBC. The session opened discussion on the challenges of establishing new data services, as well as the role of existing data services and data service providers, especially members of CESSDA, toward assisting and supporting new infrastructures.
