In 2021, ODISSEI continues making funds available for employees of member organisations using CBS Microdata. ODISSEI offers two programmes: Microdata Discount (MAD) and Microdata Grants. Both grants are described in the guidelines (on the right):
Microdata Access Grant (MAG) call 2021
The Microdata Access Grant (MAG) call 2021 offers funding for six CBS Microdata projects for researchers working at ODISSEI member organisations. The 2021 round of the MAG is now open. Proposals should be submitted before 30 April 2021, 23:59 CE(S)T. The full guidelines can be found here and the application form can be accessed here. Those who would like more information, are also welcome to join the MAG Kick-off event.
In the previous round in 2020, eight projects were awarded the grant, three more than in previous years. The committee that evaluated the 2020 applications consisted of the following members: Tanja van der Lippe (UU), Govert Bijwaard (NIDI), Didier Fouarge (Maastricht University), Maarten van Ham (TU Delft), and Jan van Ours (EUR).
Microdata Access Discount (MAD)
Via the Microdata Access Discount, employees of all member organisations can get a discount of up to 50% on their CBS Microdata projects. A condition is that projects should be financed via the first or second stream, or similar. Download the full guidelines.
