ODISSEI (Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations) is the national research infrastructure for the social sciences in the Netherlands. ODISSEI brings together researchers with the necessary data, expertise and resources to conduct ground-breaking research and embrace the computational turn in social enquiry.

Through ODISSEI, researchers have access to large-scale, longitudinal data collections as well as innovative and diverse new forms of data. These can be linked to administrative data at Statistics Netherlands (CBS). Combining data from a wide range of sources enables researchers to answer new, exciting, interdisciplinary research questions and to investigate existing questions in novel, new ways.


10 days to go until the kick-off of the #BigSurv20 conference. We will start on November 6 with a plenary kick-off and keynote by prof. Salah, followed by 5 parallel sessions. Registration is still open, and completely free! http://www.bigsurv20.org

#BigSurv20 will open with a keynote by Albert Ali Salah @SzassTam whose address will cover the intersection of #BigData and #ComputerScience #CS and their implications for the future of #SurveyResearch. You will not want to miss it! https://www.bigsurv20.org/program_events

Next Tuesday (Oct 27) @thijs_bol (@UvA_AISSR) will present his work on #inequality in homeschooling during the #corona crisis in the Netherlands, based on LISS data financed by the @ODISSEI_nl #COVID call. Want to join our #Sociology dept for the seminar? Info below!

ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer

In the ODISSEI Secure supercomputer (OSSC), researchers can analyse administrative, individual level data from CBS in SURF’s Cartesius high-performance computing environment.

These are three recent projects:

Access Grants

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

Many projects were already funded via ODISSEI.

International collaborations


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

Work streams

ODISSEI consists of four closely integrated work streams.
