Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) is the Netherlands institute for permanent access to digital research resources.
Since 2005, DANS has been supporting researchers, data professionals, other data archives, research institutions and research financiers with questions in the field of data management, certification, and topics such as FAIR, open access and software sustainability.
In addition to data services, DANS also offers training and consultancy.
Do you want to know more about depositing, sharing and reusing data? Or, for example, about research data management, digital sustainability, certification, FAIR, open access or software sustainability?
The expertise built up in national and European projects is reflected in the training courses and advice provided by DANS, intended for researchers, research institutions, research funders, data professionals and other archives. Examples can be found on the DANS Training site.
We are happy to share our knowledge with researchers, data professionals, research institutions, research funders and other repositories. We regularly organise interactive workshops on data publishing, archiving, reusability and interoperability. The developments in the field of Open Science, research data management planning and tools are also addressed.
In addition, DANS organises successful interactive training courses together with others, such as: RDNL Essentials 4 Data Support, RDNL AVG and develops training materials such as the DANS Data Game and CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide.
|DANS Data Game||
DANS has developed a game especially for researchers: the DANS Data Game. The game gives an impression of the research data landscape and was specially produced for the 15th anniversary of DANS. The game can also be used in Trainings to engage researchers and start discussions. The game can be ordered online free of charge and will later also be available digitally.
