CESSDA Data Day 2021

CESSDA stands for Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives of which the Polish Social Data Archive (PADS) is applying for membership. The project “Repositories of Open Research Data” (DRODB) implemented by Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling UW (ICM) together with The Robert Zajonc Institute for Social Studies UW (ISS) and Institute of Philosophy and Sociology PAN (IFiS) since 2018 is an excellent opportunity to intensify work in this direction.
During the CESSDA Data Day 2021 meeting, newly created – within the DRODB project – platforms for quantitative and qualitative data archives will be presented. We invite you to learn more about the program and to register.
