The ODISSEI Microdata Access Grant (MAG) provides researchers working at an ODISSEI member organisation with free access to CBS Microdata. The 2020 round was launched.
Novice researchers are particularly encouraged to submit a proposal. The available budget allows for granting free CBS Microdata access to eight projects (a 50% increase compared to last year). The budget of € 7,500 per project will typically cover a project by two researchers, with a duration of six months and access to approximately ten datasets (see the CBS data catalogue). Proposals must be submitted by 30 April 2020 at the latest.

The Microdata Access discount (MAD), an ongoing discount programme of up to 50% of the total costs of their Microdata project, also continues in 2020.
