Organisation and policy

DANS is the Dutch national centre of expertise and repository for research data. We help researchers make their data available for reuse. This allows researchers to use the data for new research and makes published research verifiable and reproducible. With more than 170,000 datasets and a staff of 60, DANS is one of the leading repositories in Europe.

DANS is an institute of  KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) and NWO (Dutch Research Council).
