International Data Access Network (IDAN)

The FDZ of the BA at the IAB is taking part in the International Data Access Network (IDAN) project. The project is a collaboration between 6 RESEARCH DATA CENTRES from France, Germany, Netherlands and the UK to facilitate research use of controlled access data between these RDCs/countries.

The aim of the project is to enable researchers to work remotely on data provided by partner countries from within each Research Data Centre with all access points in the same physical place. For more information on the project’s progress and availability of access points and data please see the project website.
