Nominations for Dutch Data Prize 2014 announced

01 September 2014

Six nominations for the Dutch Data Prize, initiated by Research Data Netherlands (RDNL), have been disclosed. The winners of the Data Prize 2014 will be announced at the awards ceremony on September 24th.

In their deliberations the judges have weighed all of the Data Prize criteria. The extent to which the dataset invites further research, the accessibility of the data and their broad applicability were among the most important factors. The six nominated projects satisfy those criteria.

The Dutch Data Prize expresses appreciation for researchers or research groups that make an additional contribution to science by making their research data available for new or additional research. There is a prize for the humanities and social sciences as well as a prize for the exact and technical sciences.
