EU researchers invited to apply for Data without Boundaries access
The Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research is a lead partner in the EU-funded Data without Boundaries (DwB) project. As part of this project, academic researchers within Europe are invited to apply for access to highly detailed social survey, census and business microdata from similar services in the UK, Germany, Netherlands and France (known as 'Research Data Centres').
This is a unique opportunity for researchers to receive specialist support and reimbursement of costs to conduct research across borders. Researchers should apply to conduct research at Research Data Centres (RDCs) not in the country of their residence. Therefore, researchers applying to access the FDZ data under the DwB project should not be resident in Germany.
Datasets available from the FDZ are listed in the “Overview of Data” section. To apply, qualified researchers should visit the Data Access section of the DwB website for more information about the other RDCs involved and how to apply. Researchers approved under DwB to use data from the FDZ will be contacted with details of the additional steps necessary to be approved to use the FDZ data.
The FDZ data can be accessed via the headquarters in Nuremberg and via five external locations (Berlin, Bremen, Dresden and Düsseldorf).
Further details on DwB are available at the following address: http://www.dwbproject.org/about/
