November 25, 2020

With attention to differences between Open and FAIR data and the new Incentive Award, the 2020 Dutch Data Prize event showcased six open and inspiring datasets while giving recognition to the ‘behind the scenes’ efforts required to achieve the FAIR data principles.

On 18 November 2020 the Dutch Data Prize, embedded in the partner event Together We Share, was awarded for the 6th time by Research Data Netherlands (RDNL). The Data Prize recognises a researcher or research group who makes extra contributions to science by making research data available for (additional) research.Out of 44 entries, three Dutch Data prize winners and three winners of the new Incentive Prize were chosen.  

On behalf of RDNL, chairman of the jury Prof. Dr. Karel Luyben (Rector Magnificus Emeritus and National Coordinator Open Science) awarded the winners with a Data Prize 2020-sculpture and € 5.000 and Incentive Prize winners € 1.000 to make the dataset (more) accessible.
