This year, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded for the fifth time, to a researcher or research group that has made a special contribution to science by making research data accessible for new or additional research.
Just as in 2016, there will be a Data Prize in three categories: humanities & social sciences, exact & technical sciences, and medical & life sciences. Are you a researcher with a good example of shared data? Or do you know someone who is? You can nominate yourself, another researcher, or a research group through researchdata.nl. Deadline for nominations is 1 July 2018; the prize consists of a sculpture and € 5.000 to make the data (even) more accessible.
For more information about the Dutch Data Prize 2018 and the nomination criteria visit the website of RDNL. Research Data Netherlands (RDNL) is a national coalition of data archives consisting of 4TU.ResearchData, SURFsara and DANS.
