The International Federation of Data Organizations for the Social Sciences (IFDO) was established in 1977. It supports data exchange and cross-national comparative research through cooperation between national social science data archives. IFDO was established to promote projects and procedures for enhancing exchange of data and technologies among data organizations, to stimulate development and use of these procedures throughout the world, and to encourage new data organizations to further these objectives. Now IFDO is thinking through its strategy, governance and position. The future IFDO aims to work in multilateral cooperation with other organizations (like CESSDA, IASSIST) and activities (like International Data Forum). This poster declares thoughts on the new position of IFDO, and calls data archives and data professionals to contribute ideas to the planning process.
