Dutch Data Prize
Every two years, the Dutch Data Prize is awarded to an individual or a team that makes readily reusable research data and available in a repository. The prize is a valuable recognition of researchers’ contributions to their own field and to the principle of FAIR data. The amount is intended to make data more FAIR and encourage data reuse. Winners can use it, for example, to organise a symposium or make their data more accessible online.
The Dutch Data Prize has been awarded since 2010. These were the previous winners.
