CESSDA archives and research data management activities
The Council of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA) is an association of European nation archives working in cooperation to develop a European wide data infrastructure. Part of CESSDA's activities will be promoting Research Data Management training and support through and along with member archives. The aim of this panel is to provide a comparative forum, informing participants on funding environments and data sharing in different European countries thereby providing a cross-national
... g a cross-national perspective that can be sometimes ignored. This panel brings together representatives from CESSDA member archives to illustrate the social science data sharing requirements and reuse culture in their countries as well as display the work they are doing archiving data for reuse and providing Research Data Management support services. From this panel session we hope to identify commonalities, differences, obstacles, solutions, in the European experience and potential progress strategies for the CESSDA as it addresses the best way to coordinate European wide training and support on RDM, including support for European Union Horizon 2020 research projects. Although the session is focused on the European experience, it welcomes and strongly encourages international perspectives.
