Single Point of Access (SPA): A service hub for a remote access network
Anja Burghardt (Institute for Employment Research (IAB))
David Schiller (Institute for Employment Research (IAB)The European Data without Boundaries (DwB) project proposes a Remote Access Network (Eu-RAN) to access confidential microdata from different sources. A centralized Single Point of Access (SPA) will make it easier to reach several decentralized organized network points and ease the work of researchers running projects with data from different data owners within this Network. To support sophisticated transnational research the IT-Infrastructure of the Eu-RAN contains a service hub attached to the SPA, which provides different tools for accredited researchers. The services offered include but are not limited to secured virtual research environments, user account and contract management, interfaces to research data access, text editors, statistical software packages, and tools for cooperation like forums, wikis or instant messaging service. This talk will highlight added values a SPA will generate for researchers using the Eu-RAN. In addition outcomes of DwB discussions about detailed requirements and functionalities for such SPA are presented. Having a centralized access point equipped with the described Service Hub will ease research with different data sources in Europe and bring together researchers, National Statistical Institutes, data archives, data owners and access facilities by offering the basis for a vibrant community.)
