The CESSDA SaW project has successfully accomplished the first year of its duration and all obligations in that period. We are now well underway with activities in the second year.

Part of the dissemination activities is the organization of three workshops; two for the strengthening of the network through knowledge exchange, one for widening the network via networking activities with national ministries, Research Councils, and the Social Sciences research community.

We would like to invite staff members of your Service Provider to the second CESSDA SaW workshop aiming at strengthening of the network through knowledge exchange:
