Data Prize 2022

On 29 November 2022, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded during the FAIR Data Day | Reusing Data to Advance Science.

The Data Prize will be awarded in three categories:

  • Social sciences and humanities
  • Natural and engineering sciences
  • Life sciences and health

The winners of the Dutch Data Prize receive €3.500,- towards making their dataset(s) more FAIR; e.g. by organizing a symposium or by making the data accessible online.


The Dutch Data Prize Award Criteria 2022 provide guidance for preparing submissions and to ensure transparency about to what the jury will adhere in assessing submissions.

Award ceremony

The award ceremony will take place on 29 November 2022 as part of an engaging conference program for researchers, research support professionals and open science enthusiasts alike.

The Dutch Data Prize is a recognition of researchers’ contributions to their own field and to the principle of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data. There are many routes to practising FAIR data management and each of the finalists will have the opportunity to share ‘behind the scenes’ details about their research and data management practices in a short address prior to the award ceremony.

The Dutch Data Prize 2022 is offered to you by Research Data Netherlands (RDNL) and National Programme Open Science (NPOS).
