ODISSEI (Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations) works to develop a sustainable research infrastructure for the social sciences in the Netherlands. Through ODISSEI, researchers within the social sciences have access to large-scale, longitudinal data collections connected to registrations from Statistics Netherlands (CBS). This virtual web enables researchers to answer new, cross-disciplinary research questions and to investigate existing questions in new ways.

ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer (OSSC)

In the OSSC researchers can analyse their data linked to CBS Microdata in SURFsara’s high-performance computing environment. These are three recent projects:


International collaborations

Access grants

ODISSEI offers several discounts and calls to employees of member organisations who use Microdata or the LISS panel.


ODISSEI is financed by participating organisations and is governed by a Supervisory Board and a Management Board.
