On Tuesday, September 28, 2021, from 15:30 to 17:00 CEST, the DANS Data Trail workshop: From Here to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will take place. Registration is now open.

From 20-23 September 2021, the third edition of the Open Science FAIR will take place. The international conference is an initiative of OpenAIRE and covers all topics related to Open Science. DANS is involved as well.


How do I do better research? How does open science work? What is the European Open Science Cloud and why does it matter? These questions will be answered in the course ‘Bringing synergy to research and data management in Europe’ by EOSC Synergy.

The European Research Council (ERC) has recently updated their information on Open Research Data and Research Data Management Plans (RDMPs). Anyone who receives a grant from the ERC is bound by their policy on Open Science.

Recently, DANS managed to renew the CoreTrustSeal for another three years. With the certification of its digital archive, DANS is one of the first organisations worldwide with a renewed certification.

The project combines perspectives and methods from Science & Technology Studies and Computer Science to investigate how graphs related to climate change and COVID-19 are made and understood by both researchers and the public. It is funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund.

Via DANS, the dataset ‘Alle Corona Persconferenties geannoteerd met Searle’s Speech Acts’ is available. This dataset contains the annotated versions of the press conferences that Prime Minister Rutte and Minister de Jonge gave about Covid 19.
