Our researchers Nermin Oruc and Amela Kurta received InGRID2 visiting grant to TARKI-POLC, Budapest, Hungary. The purpose of the visit is capacity building of CREDI’s researches working on DASS-BiH (Data Archive for Social Sciences in Bosnia and Herzegovina). During their visit, researchers will learn about the day-to-day operations of Hungarian data archive located at TARKI-POLC, as well as about procedures and conditions that DASS-BiH needs to fulfil in order to become a full member of CESSDA-ERIC. The visit is scheduled for the end of February-early March.
DASS-BiH (Data Archive for Social Sciences in Bosnia and Herzegovina), currently organisational unit within CREDI, is the national service with a role of ensuring long-term preservation and dissemination of social science research data. The purpose of the DASS-BiH is to provide a vital research data resource for researchers, teachers, students, and all other interested users.
We are grateful to InGRID for offering us such an opportunity. A key activity of the InGRID-2 project is providing transnational access to research infrastructures with data and expertise within the fields of poverty and living conditions, and working conditions and vulnerability. Via short and long-term visiting grants researchers are able to experiment with and work on data in a context of mutual knowledge exchange and cross-fertilization.
