A central DANS data service is the DANS Data Vault. This is a safe, sustainable and certified long-term preservation repository that meets the highest archiving requirements. The DANS Data Vault contains all datasets that have been entrusted to DANS, including the data from the Data Stations and DataverseNL.
The Vault is also offered as a service to academic organizations, research institutions and companies that want to store their research data for the long term with a reliable institution. Using mostly automatic protocols, DANS ensures uniform storage and accessibility of the data, based on international standards and best practices.
