Organisation and policy
DANS promotes sustained access to digital research data. For this, DANS encourages scientific researchers to archive and reuse data in a sustained form, for instance via the online archiving system EASY and DataverseNL. With NARCIS, DANS also provides access to thousands of scientific datasets, publications and other research information in the Netherlands. The institute furthermore provides training and consultancy and carries out research on sustained access to digital information. Driven by data, DANS ensures the further improvement of access to digital research data with its services and participation in (inter)national projects and networks. DANS is an institute of KNAW and NWO.
