DANS wishes you a merry christmas and happy newyear

In the dynamic landscape of research data, 2023 proved to be a year of remarkable developments for DANS. From the launch of Data Stations to participation in international projects, here’s an overview of the highlights.

From 11 December 2023, it will no longer be possible to deposit data in EASY. Researchers, groups of researchers and data professionals can archive and publish their data in one of the four domain-specific DANS Data Stations. There is a Data Station for Archaeology, Social Sciences and Humanities, Physical & Technical Sciences, and a Data Station for Life Sciences.

The BY-COVID project’s second Annual General Assembly took place in Barcelona on October 9-10. DANS co-organised the workshop ‘GDPR – common challenges when mobilising data’, aiming to gather experiences, challenges, and solutions to GDPR-related issues when mobilising data for infectious disease research.
