Introducing our partners

 What's new?


The Annual Conference of the Austrian Political Science Association took place at the University of Graz this year. This past week, exciting research questions in the field of political science were discussed.


On November 17th, AUSSDA introduced its services and archive at an event held in Vienna. Representatives of the social science community, CESSDA ERIC, a number of funding agencies and ministries were there to witness the launch of the new AUSSDA archiving solution.


Against the backdrop of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and other European data initiatives, two Open Science events will be held in Vienna in the third week of November.


"Big Data" is a buzzword in business and politics, and a new challenge for social sciences. One AUSSDA will tackle head on, by intensifying cooperation with the "Wearables"-project of Professor Batinic. Together with his team, AUSSDA develops new tools and services fit to archive "Big Data".


AUSSDA develops various documents and processes but our work centres on the repository solution. With Dataverse, archiving and reuse are quick and easy.


A successful project to strengthen and widen the infrastructure of social science data archives in the European Research Area is coming to a close.
