One of the FREYA partners is DANS, the Netherlands institute for permanent access to digital research resources. DANS provides several services for the research community, including the national portal for scientific information, NARCIS.
This portal provides information on Dutch (open access) publications, datasets, researchers, scientific institutes and projects.
Within FREYA, DANS is working on improving the connections between the different information types incorporated in NARCIS, enriching the information that the portal can provide to the public. NARCIS is now, for instance, able to show the connections between a dataset and a related publication and vice versa. A nice example is the dataset of the HANZE database of historical damaging floods in Europe (here) and the recent paper by Paprotny and colleagues (here) who used the data.
Persistent identifiers are the key.

FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to extend the infrastructure for persistent identifiers (PIDs) as a core component of open research, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access to research resources. New provenance services will enable researchers to better evaluate data and make the scientific record more complete, reliable, and traceable.
