23 / 04 / 2014, RDNL
The Dutch Data Prize 2014 will be awarded to a researcher or research group making an extra contribution to science by making research data available for additional or new research.
The Dutch Data Prize awards the efforts of researchers who bring data together, document it and make it accessible to others. Every two years, two prizes are awarded: one prize for the humanities and social sciences and one prize for science and technology subjects. The winners receive a sculpture, €7,500 to make the dataset (more) accessible (e.g. by organising a symposium or by making the data accessible online) and a full dinner for the group of researchers involved in producing the dataset concerned and making it accessible.
The organisation of the Dutch Data Prize is handled by Research Data Netherlands (RDNL), a collaboration between 3TU.Datacentrum and Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS).
On 24 September 2014, following the Plenary Meeting of the Research Data Alliance, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded. Nominations are possible until 1 July 2014, after which the judging panel will assess the nominations. The candidates shortlisted for the prize will be announced on 1 September. Throughout September, there will be coverage of the candidates and their achievements, including on the websites of Research Data Netherlands, DANS and 3TU.Datacentrum.
