Personal profile


Cees Hof works at Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS), the Netherlands institute for permanent access to digital research resources. As a Data Station Manager, he is responsible for all the interactions with the research communities within the Life and Technical Sciences and acts as the first point of contact for the users of the DANS Data Vault, the long term data repository of DANS. Next to his Data Station position, Cees is also the major project acquisition officer at DANS as well as one of the Research Data Management (RDM) trainers.

Cees started his academic career as an applied researcher in the field of ecology and eco-toxicology and received his PhD from the University of Amsterdam as an evolutionary biologist and palaeontologist. As a postdoctoral researcher he worked at the University of Bristol in the UK.

Before moving to DANS he was the coordinator of the European Network for Biodiversity Information (ENBI) and for more than 10 years Node Manager of the Dutch branch of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). Opening-up science by sharing data and information as good and as wide as possible, is the motivational thought behind his career.
