CASD is part of the International Data Access Network (IDAN) project, founded in 2018. The project is a collaboration between 6 Research Data Centres (RDCs) from France, Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom to facilitate research use of controlled access data between these RDCs/countries.

In its first phase IDAN aims to enable researchers to work remotely on secure access data provided by partner countries from within each Research Data Centre with all access points in the same physical place (RDC/ Safe Room). For more information on the project’s progress and availability of access points and data, please see the project website.
