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.
CESSDA's Metadata Management (CMM) project has released its first report today, entitled CESSDA Service Providers’ Metadata Practices.
Phase 1 of the Technical Framework project has recently been completed. It ran from October 2015 to April 2016 and was intended to build the foundations that the various components of the CESSDA Research Infrastructure (such as a Products and Services Catalogue) will sit on.
The 2016 Summer Programme schedule is now available and registration for the programme is open.
Researchers and doctoral students are invited to take part in this 5-day training course Research Data Management, Access and Use of Secondary Data, which will take place at the International Summer School “Ljubljana Methods School (LJMS)”.
