Main Billing and Payment Methods

  • Only one single legal entity can pay for the services relating to users’ data access as part of a “CASD research project”. However, it is possible to change the financing institution over the project lifecycle.
  • The monthly subscription for the access point to the data (SD-Box) can be paid by an institution other than the institution financing the users’ data access services (one or several access points can now be financed by several legal institutions).
  • The minimum duration for a project is one year (12 months).
  • The legal representative of the institution financing a project or access point must sign a contract with CASD.
  • The legal representative of the institution(s) hosting one or several access point(s) must sign a contract with CASD.
  • Institutions pursuing research and public-interest study purposes as their main activity are automatically eligible for subsidised rates.

Students, PhD students and postdocs benefit from discounts funded by CASD and its partner organisations.

Only the access provision is a paying service. Access fees applied are meant to cover for (a part of) CASD’s running costs. The fees that may apply to the data come under the responsibility of the data producers themselves.
