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:

Are increased healthcare costs a consequence of certain physical and psychological characteristics or of personal and cognitive characteristics? Or is there another explanation found in previous research?
What is the relationship between the neighbourhood you live in and your individual income? That is the research question in this TU Delft project. For calculation purposes, the Netherlands has been divided into grids of 100m2.
