DASISH - Data Service Infrastructure for the Social Sciences and Humanities, brings together 5 ESFRI infrastructures within social science and humanities, namely CLARIN, SHARE, ESS, CESSDA, DARIAH with the focus on common activities across the disciplines and infrastructures and the aim of providing solutions to common problems, solutions that will strengthen international collaboration. Among the participants there are six CESSDA members: DANS, FSD, GESIS, NSD, SND and UKDA. DASISH is an EC 7th Framework project with a budget of € 6 million and is coordinated by SND. This presentation will elaborate on four main areas of the DASISH collaboration. 1. The digital research environment, which deals with data quality assurance in the production of primary data in the social sciences, 2. Tools and services, which deal with continuous data enrichment, metadata quality assurance, persistent identifiers and research discipline specific workflows, 3. Common Data Services which concerns digital preservation techniques, quality assessment of data centres and access to and availability of data through networks of community-based solutions and how this will be accomplished and 4. Legal and Ethics which deals with legal and ethics issues involved in preserving data and making them available.
