Objective: The project "Digital Slovakia - Research Data for Students" was created in cooperation with the Faculty of Social and Economics of Comenius University in Bratislava. Its primary objective was to provide students of our universities and universities with professionally prepared and elaborated data from empirical research on the subject of computer science conducted by the Institute for Public Affairs in 2005–2015. Their use will be mainly in seminar, bachelor, masters or doctoral theses. The basic output of the project is an electronic data matrix in a user-friendly and expanded format that offers students nearly 3,000 pivot tables with statistical and methodological data. The project ultimately brings students to real research practice that is very difficult to implement under the current conditions of a financially underdeveloped education system.
