DANS - Data Archiving and Networked Services

DANS promotes sustained access to digital research data. For this, DANS encourages scientific researchers to archive and reuse data in a sustained form, for instance via the online archiving system EASY ( and the Dutch Dataverse Network ( With NARCIS (, DANS also provides access to thousands of scientific datasets, e-publications and other research information in the Netherlands. The institute furthermore provides training and consultancy and carries out research on sustained access to digital information.

Elements in our new strategic plan 2015-2020 are:

1. the federated data infrastructure in the Netherlands

2. the care for living data and

3. the need to change the business model by charging institutions that deposit data in the DANS-repository for the basic storage costs.

Driven by data, DANS with its services and participation in (inter)national projects and networks ensures the further improvement of access to digital research data. Please visit for more information and contact details.
