An increasingly complex environment
• In many European countries, improvements in quantity and quality of government microdata production have come with better conditions of access for researchers.
• Yet difficulties and inequalities in access remain. In particular:
– diverse perceptions of confidentiality issues coexist;
– discrepancies subsist between official procedures and actual practices;
– documentation is often insufficient or uneven.
• This leads to low transparency and high complexity of the system.
• Complexity at the national level is reinforced at the European level, due to heterogeneities among countries.
The case for a European research infrastructure
• In this context, a European Research
Infrastructure can offer pathways for access by
acting as a central data broker.
⇒ CESSDA Data Archives have played this role
for several years at national level: what can be
their place at European level?
