Conference for Social and Economic Data (KSWD)

Every three years, the German Data Forum (RatSWD) hosts the Conference for Social and Economic Data (KSWD).

We require robust and up-to-date research data to fully understand and explain social and economic developments. These data must be in strict accordance with data protection policies. The KSWD is the forum for interdisciplinary exchange on research data issues in Germany.

The KSWD is open for everybody interested in research data, including representatives of science, policy, or data protection as well as representatives from institutions working in research funding and research infrastructure development. It also serves as the forum to discuss the guidelines for the German Data Forum’s future activities.

The election of the appointment proposals for the representatives of the social, behavioural and economic sciences also takes place during the conference.
