This year, for the fifth time, the Dutch Data Prize will be awarded for a scientist or research group that has made an extraordinary contribution to science by making research data available for additional or new research. Just as in 2016 there will be a Data Prize in three categories: humanities & social sciences; exact & technical sciences and medical & life sciences.
