Since 2006, DANS has issued grants to Small Data Projects, i.e. projects in which one or more important datasets are described and made accessible. The data must comply with the FAIR guiding principles for scientific data management. The Small Data Project grants intend to serve as a stimulus for data archiving and re-use. We encourage domains and subdomains to apply where data archiving and reuse are still a novelty.
The following six projects have been awarded:
- Iraqw Texts in Society (Leiden University) – African Linguistics
- Gevaarlijk Amsterdam: Criminaliteit op de kaart, 1850-1913 (Leiden University) – History/Digital Humanities
- Mapping Muro Tenente: opening up the digital archives of a key site in Dutch Mediterranean Archaeology (VU Amsterdam) – Archaeology
- 100 Jaar met spreeuwen op reis (Netherlands Institute for Ecology – KNAW) – Ecology
- Automatisch archiveren van LISS data (CentERdata) – Social Sciences
- The Centralized Data Classification Platform: Exploration and Contribution of Knowledge Systems (International Institute for Social History) – Social History & Computer Science
Are you from a domain in which few data are being achieved and re-used so far and interested in archiving and sharing your research data? Would you like to know more about the Small Data Projects? Please visit our webpage.
We will publish new information concerning the next round on our webpage in the middle of 2019. Sign up for our newsletter DataLink (in Dutch) to keep on track with the latest developments.
