Third DASISH Newsletter, January 2013

Welcome to the third issue of the DASISH newsletter. We hope that you find it useful and that you will forward it to your contacts and networks.
In this issue, I would particularly like to draw your attention to the news items about two data workshops, the qualitative data workshop in Maynooth, Ireland, and the quantitative data workshop in Mannheim, Germany. Both of these workshops were organised by the DASISH project in November and December of 2012, respectively, with the purpose of discussing with players and stakeholders that are not DASISH partners but who are valuable discussion partners in qualitative and quantitative data issues. The workshops were both very successful in achieving just that. A report on the first workshop will be available shortly on
Enjoy your reading,
