The priority program "New Data Spaces for the Social Sciences" aims to open up new data spaces for the social sciences. It is designed for the long term and, in view of current social transformations, aims at the consistent modernization of social science methods.

In order to more precisely research the major societal challenges of the coming decades, including digitization, climate change, and war- and pandemic-related societal changes, and to be able to identify the need for political action on this basis, the social sciences need innovative research data and methods. The DFG has established the long-term infrastructure priority program "New Data Spaces" (SPP 2431) to open up and develop such new data spaces.

It is managed by the program committee, consisting of Prof. Dr. Cordula Artelt (spokesperson) and Prof. Dr. Corinna Kleinert (both LIfBi), Prof. Dr. Reinhard Pollak (GESIS), Prof. Dr. Stefan Liebig (FU Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Alexander Mehler (Goethe University Frankfurt).
