We are currently seeing an explosion in research infrastructure initiatives at domain, local, national and international levels. How does a data archive/repository provide services to multiple infrastructures whilst aligning the requests to its longterm strategies and responsibilities? How does a research infrastructure ensure viability and longterm sustainability by ensuring that it has an engaged community of service providers as well as users? Five European research infrastructures in the social sciences and humanities have come together in the form of DASISH – Data Service Infrastructure for the Social Sciences and Humanities, to find solutions to some of the prevailing issues that we face as service providers and research infrastructures and support shared development. The activities in DASISH are consequently broad and cover areas such as: reference architecture for research infrastructure alignment, preservation challenges & deposit service convergence, metadata quality improvement, legal & ethical challenges, multilinguality in questionnaire tools and question databank, data, tools and services discovery, annotation frameworks, and training & workshops for data managers, service providers and those working in infrastructures.
