South-Eastern European Data Services (SEEDS)

Project period: May 2015 – May 2017 | Donator: Swiss National Science Foundation

SEEDS project aimed at helping to establish new data services for the social sciences in the countries of Albania, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia. With the guidance of the long-established Swiss and Slovenian national data services (FORS and ADP), the project extended the capacities of selected partner institutions, and contributed to developing knowledge and tools related to data service infrastructures. SEEDS brought partner institutions into the fold of an international movement and network to provide long-term benefits not only to the partner institutions, but more importantly to the respective national research communities by making more data available for secondary analyses.
