On 9 May, from 11:00-12:00, ODISSEI is organizing an information session on how the national infrastructure can support researchers in their upcoming ERC or NWO funding application. Facilities that ODISSEI and its partners offer, can help elevate grant proposals and offer a comparative advantage in the application process. During this session, dr. Kasia Karpinska, ODISSEI Scientific Manager, will sketch the opportunities present at ODISSEI and will answer the questions of the potential applicants.
Dr. Zoltán Lippényi (University of Groningen), who has made use of the ODISSEI Grant Support, illustrates what kind of support ODISSEI can give, by sharing his grant application experience: ‘ODISSEI’s expert advice on linking survey and register data and their willingness to cooperate in establishing a data infrastructure for inequality on the new ODISSEI portal were helpful, as they significantly contributed to a successful VIDI grant application in 2021.’
Expertise present in ODISSEI spans from data linkages, data management, and supercomputing, to support in applying computational methods. We closely collaborate with many well-established institutions in the Netherlands, such as CBS, Centerdata (host of the LISS panel study), and SURF, all of which have the dedicated expertise needed to successfully complete complex research projects. Potential applicants can also evoke the support of the ODISSEI Social Data Science Team (SoDa), a team of computational social scientists, methodologists, and research engineers, who can advise on the design of the proposed study but also prepare a technical proof of concept for the grant application. Facilities offered by ODISSEI are interoperable which offers a unique opportunity to expand the complexity of the research agenda, gaining comparative advantage in the application process.
