CESSDA provides large scale, integrated and sustainable data services to the social sciences. It brings together social science data archives across Europe, with the aim of promoting the results of social science research and supporting national and international research and cooperation.
CESSDA is organised as a limited company under Norwegian law and is owned and financed by the individual member states’ ministry of research or a delegated institution. Norway is hosting CESSDA, and the main office is located in Bergen.
Although "NSDnews" is mainly aimed at readers in the research sector in Norway, the publication gives a good overview of national and international projects and activities.
In the framework of the partnership between CESSDA & PROGEDO, and the participation in the European Horizon 2020 project CESSDA Strengthening and Widening (CESSDA SaW), PROGEDO is recruiting a PhD in social sciences for 11 months (from 1 December 2016 to October 2017).
This workshop of the Big Data Europe (BDE, http://www.big-data-europe.eu) project is the second one for Societal Challenge 6 (SC6), which is about Social Sciences and Digital Humanities.
EDDI16 is organised jointly by GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and IDSC of IZA - International Data Service Center of the Institute for the Study of Labor.
