Topics & Programme

Data without Boundaries organized a specific workshop on "Improving Access to European Microdata - State-of-play and Developments",  held on 4 March 2013 in the "Charlemagne" building of the European Commission, Brussels, in conjunction with the NTTS Conference 2013.

This workshop gathered 40 experts and institutions active in the field of official statistics, who had an in-depth discussion about the feasibility of a European Remote Access Network that would facilitate researchers’ access to confidential national microdata across Europe.

Participants  precisely discussed some of the important issues (legal & contractual aspects, IT, security, organisation and workflows) and the possible architectures for such a network that DwB has identified.

The programme of the workshop is available here and is diplayed below:
