CESSDA provides large scale, integrated and sustainable data services to the social sciences, having evolved from a network of European data service providers into a legal entity and large-scale infrastructure under the auspices of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap in June 2013.

Since then, CESSDA has been organised as a limited company under Norwegian law. CESSDA is owned and financed by the individual member states’ ministry of research or a delegated institution. Norway is hosting CESSDA, and the main office is located in Bergen.

CESSDA AS along with several of its Service Providers (ADP, CSDA, GESIS, NSD, FORS, UKDA) will be particularly involved in several work packages including: WP4: Interactive tools for cross-national surveys, WP5: Training and dissemination, and WP6: New forms of data - legal, ethical and quality issues.
