Project DELIVERIES – D2.2 – D3.3 – Milestones 12 & 13


Over the last few months various deliverables, milestones and project outputs have been delivered :

  • D2.2 Knowledge-Sharing Platform Content and Management Policy
    Abstract: Building on the results of the Virtual Stakeholder’s Forum (D2.1), this report details how the
    content and functionality of the CESSDA Knowledge-Sharing Platform will be developed, and describes
    how it will be run, managed and maintained post-project.
  • D3.3 Guide for national planning for setting up new data services
    Abstract: This guide aims to assist interested actors or country teams in developing plans for
    establishing national data services in the social sciences. The guide helps country teams to include
    in their plans a mission statement, a governance structure, a description of areas of competence
    and infrastructure that need to be strengthened, as well as a description of future needs and
    necessary resources for setting up and maintaining viable data services.

  • WP4 – Milestones 12 & 13 – Tutorials INGEST and DISSEMINATION workflow
    Abstract: Knowledge exchange between current, future, and aspiring members is one objective of CESSDA Strengthening and widening the European infrastructure for social science data archives (SaW). By offering the necessary administrative, technical, and methodological support, the project promotes the establishment of new data archives and strengthens existing ones. Providing knowledge sharing through hands-on practitioner and community training is an efficient instrument to promote knowledge transfer – both among current CESSDA members and between members and non-member ERA archives working towards building services in line with CESSDA AS quality standards.As part of trainings for data archive practitioners our tutorials provide guidance on data INGEST and DISSEMINATION practices. Following the OAIS model as the standard theoretical framework for many archives, we start by giving a short overview on its key terms.The tutorials are designed for an advanced target audience involved in data archiving and also offer basic introductions for beginners. Many institutions in the area of long-term data preservation provide excellent information and training materials on these subjects; the sub-sections therefore include a number of links, grouped under the categories documentation, training, and example.The section OVERALL INFORMATION includes training materials and examples on practices in general.
