ZSI is a private non-profit trans-disciplinary social science research institute, established 1990. It is among Austria’s largest social science organisations and Austria’s most successful social scientific research institute in FP7. ZSI’s key activities are clustered in three dedicated units: (1) Work and Equal Opportunities, (2) Research Policy and Development, and (3) Technology and Knowledge. All departments are involved in networking and dialogue activities, bringing stakeholders together to enable and enhance social innovation. Also Responsible Research and Innovation is a cross-cutting issue being addressed in several ZSI projects (e.g. RRI Tools, ICT-RRI Forum and SMART-Map). ZSI frequently coordinates both research and innovation actions (RIA) as well as coordination and support actions (CSA). ZSI is engaged in the Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) topic via the FP7/H2020 projects RRI Tools (among other tasks also leading the evaluation), SMART-Map, NanOpinion, and RRI-ICT Forum and in bio-economy in BLOOM. ZSI works in knowledge generation, knowledge implementation and knowledge diffusion, i.e. in research and application, which includes network coordination, consulting as well as education and evaluation. ZSI team members are engaged in a wide variety of innovative, high-impact educational experiences and evaluation methods as ZSI researchers teach at universities, universities of applied sciences and in other educational organisations, give academic and applied presentations with a very high international outreach and they (co-) organise at annual average more than 70 professional events during the last five years. In general the ZSI offers analyses and concepts for promoting and implementing social innovation in its thematically focused areas from a transdisciplinary perspective. In a number of open science, RRI and technology assessment projects (lately, for instance, Smartmap or RRI Tools), ZSI has successfully developed and employed participatory techniques and models of stakeholder inclusion. ZSI has been at the forefront of European-level discussions on open and citizen science (ZSI experts co-authored the White Paper on Citizen Science in Europe). Our experts have a strong focus on research at the interface between technology and users/society: how to develop technology in order to be of use for diverse groups (acceptance, usability, design for all approach, participative methods, empowerment and creation of ownership); as well as to understand the implications of certain technologies (e.g. via constructive technology assessment approaches).
Since 2006, the Learning Planet Institute has been dedicated to reinventing learning for all ages (lifelong learning) through collective intelligence in order to build sustainable & inclusive learning societies able to rise to the complex challenges we face.

DANS is the Dutch national centre of expertise and repository for research data. We help researchers make their data available for reuse. This allows researchers to use the data for new research and makes published research verifiable and reproducible. With more than 200,000 datasets and a staff of 60, DANS is one of the leading repositories in Europe.
The use of FAIR data improves the verifiability and reproducibility of research. It also enhances efficiency because working on datasets is expensive. What is more, linking data can lead to new discoveries and insights. Reusing and connecting data accelerates knowledge circulation and increases our ability to solve complex issues. In short, making better use of data leads to better science, which matters to society.
The following years, DANS will focus on what the Dutch data landscape needs to be successful and how DANS can make its most effective contribution: as a versatile data repository, as a centre of expertise for FAIR data, and as a partner. Read more in the programme for 2021-2025.
