Workpackage 8 (WP8) of ESSnet Big Data focuses on the methodology, IT and quality aspects of the project. Because these can only be addressed after the content workpackages 1 to 7 (!)have laid the necessary foundations, activity in WP8 only started at the beginning of the second stage of the project (SGA-2, running from January 2017 to May 2018).
WP8 is carried out by representatives of seven ESSnet Big Data partners: CBS (Statistics Netherlands) which is leading WP8, Statistics Austria, Statistics Bulgaria, ISTAT (Statistics Italy), GUS (Statistics Poland), Statistics Portugal and Statistics Slovenia.
