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.


On September 3, DANS and @lcrdm organise "Food for Psychologists", an event especially for researchers in psychology about RDM / Open Science. Please join us! You can register online for workshops: https://dans.knaw.nl/en/current/events/food-for-psychologists

ODISSEI and @SURF_onderzoek will present the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer at the digital "Voer voor Psychologen" event, 3 September. Register now! Organised by @DANSKNAW and @lcrdm

ODISSEI awarded 8 projects with free access to CBS microdata - 3 more than last year. Congratulations to the researchers!

The next round will probably open in the spring of 2021.

The Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) is recruiting! We are looking for candidates to join our survey team. The deadline is 19 July! Please check: https://www.ggp-i.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Fieldwork-officer.pdf

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.
