SOHDA: Social sciences and humanities data archive

2014-2019 | Regional funding


Pilot year for the Belgian data archive for the social sciences and humanities under the European CESSDA framework – Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives. A Data Archive is a virtual space where survey or register data from the Social Sciences and Humanities can be stored, documented and made available for further research. ID will work in collaboration with BELSPO, the UCL and the National Archive to explore the alternative paths towards such a Data Archive in Belgium, in analogy with data archives in many other European countries. Furthermore, a new operational website will be dedicated to archived data originating from and beyond past studies carried out at both research centers.
