In life and in social media, the only constant is change

When we announced the birth of CESSDA Training last year, it was clear that an exciting time lay ahead. Since then, CESSDA has taken important steps to further structure, professionalize and enhance the cooperation between the CESSDA Service Providers, and to enable them work jointly towards strengthening the European research data infrastructure in the social sciences.

An important instrument in this effort is the EU-funded project CESSDA SaW: “Strengthening and widening the European infrastructure for social science data archives”. CESSDA Training is very proud to be involved in this project, and we will use this blog to report about our activities in more detail as the work on the different tasks proceeds.

As part of our involvement we have also decided with the CESSDA Main Office to utilize our Twitter account to keep you updated about CESSDA SaW and other developments happening in CESSDA. To reflect this, we are changing our Twitter handle from @CESSDAtraining to @CESSDA_Data today.

New look! Same great taste! 30% more!

Apart from the handle, we promise that not too much is going to change. We will still tweet about everything related to data management and digital preservation of research data, peppered with a bit of replication and open science, and a good dose of research data infrastructure to round off the flavor!

Cheers! 😉

A fresh start

There has been a bit of a hiatus in our blogging activity (formerly on the Archive and Data Management Training Center blog). We have been busy! We taught more workshops this year than ever before (Yes, Research Data Management is finally becoming a THING it seems 😉 ), worked with the CESSDA Main Office to build our new website, and did “behind the scenes” work to develop ideas for how training and learning will happen in CESSDA in the future.

But now we are back and will use this blog to ruminate on all things research data management and digital preservation, as well as our activities within CESSDA and projects relating to it. So grab a hot drink and read more about this in the next blog post!
