InGRID- 2 Round table on the gaps of research infrastructures in Central and Eastern Europe
Published on March 7, 2019
On 7 – 8 March 2019 in Bratislava, more than 30 experts and advocates of research data in social sciences gathered to discuss the gaps in research infrastructures. The round table was organised by CELSI within the InGRID-2 project aiming to integrate research infrastructures and making thus an evidence-based contribution to a European policy strategy of inclusive growth.
Specific databases and data harmonising initiatives throughout Europe have been introduced. Case studies from Poland, Hungary and Romania about the data available on specific topics and vulnerable groups have been presented.
The round table offered an opportunity to discuss the role of administrative data and ways on how to overcome the challenges in research infrastructures. It also offered a view on regional differences, for instance while in Hungary the data bank is operated by Academy of Science with harmonized structrure and access mechanism, in Romania or Slovakia the administrative data accessibility depends rather on bilateral and institutional agreements.
