Be recognised

In recent years, many UM researchers have made efforts to make their research data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). Do you want your efforts to be rewarded and do you want extra recognition for your contributions to your own field and to the principle of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data, then nominate your dataset for the Dutch Data Prize.

Dutch Data Prize award at FAIR Data Day

Every two years, the Dutch Data Prize is awarded to an individual or a team that makes research data FAIR. You can nominate a dataset produced by yourself or by another individual or research group. The deadline for nominating datasets is 30 September.

The Data Prize will be awarded in three categories:

  • Social sciences and humanities
  • Natural and engineering sciences
  • Life sciences and health

The winners of the Dutch Data Prize receive €3.500,- towards making their dataset(s) more FAIR (e.g. by organising a symposium or by making the data accessible online).

On 29 November 2022, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded during the FAIR Data Day | Reusing Data to Advance Science.
