Educational Programme

The ODISSEI Hub’s External Relations Officer will operate an extensive educational programme to facilitate the use of the infrastructure and the uptake of computational and innovative methods in the social sciences. First, there will be an annual ODISSEI Conference where researchers can showcase their projects and engage in broad and open discussion about developments in the infrastructure. This annual event will be hosted by a different member organisation every year and will be coordinated by EUR.

Second, there will be a series of workshops aimed at promoting the usage of the infrastructure and the methods and skills needed to do so. These workshops will be coordinated by the EUR but will be hosted by various member organisations. There will be approximately six workshops per year. The program of workshops includes but is not limited to: The ODISSEI Data Facility users Bootcamp; An introduction to Statistics Netherlands microdata access; An introduction to the LISS Panel; Ethics and GDPR in ODISSEI; Machine learning for social science. Third, there will be regular communications with the educational officers at member organisations to synchronise and coordinate existing educational programs on computational social sciences.
