The Services - Data Discovery, Harmonisation, Analysis and Dissemination

Presenter 1
Uwe Jensen

The project will setup strategic plans for developments on metadata, data models and software upgrades for data and metadata capture, processing and management which will complement the guiding services in online publishing, discovery, access and analysis of complex data types. Particular attention will be given to the advanced options of DDI 3.0 to handle complex datasets along the entire data-life-cycle.

The extension of the thesaurus to other languages will enable natural language resource discovery for an increased number of European researchers. Accordingly developments to the CESSDA portal will enhance the system for researchers by facilitating access to resources discovered via the thesaurus.

Needs in comparative research associated with data harmonisation are subject of a particular endeavour. The identification of the demands for harmonisation to standards and conceptual work on metadata structures for harmonisation rules and conversion keys are the central issues on the content side. The draft for a database and the construction of middleware to facilitate the application of harmonisation techniques through the portal are key tasks to setup the functional specifications and realize related technical solutions.
