Data without Boundaries
The Data without Boundaries project (DwB) aims to create an integrated model for accessing official statistics across European boundaries in a way that enables effective social science research yet meets the national arrangements of member states.
To do this, project partners are establishing the essential relationships and agreements on key standards necessary to break down barriers and enable safe access.
There are 27 partners from 12 European countries participating in the project including: members of the Council of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA); national statistical institutes; and research teams with interests relating to disclosure and respondent confidentiality.
The DwB project is funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme.
The Archive is contributing to six of the project's 12 work packages:
- Work package 4: Improving access to official statistics microdata (eTechnology)
- Work package 6: Networking conferences, workshops and training sessions
- Work package 8: Improving resource discovery for official statistics data
- Work package 9: Onsite access to official microdata across Europe
- Work package 10: Transnational remote access to Safe Data Centres (SDCs)
- Work package 12: Implementing improved resource discovery for official statistics data
