The Hub will coordinate ODISSEI’s educational and training programme so that students and researchers can familiarise themselves with advanced analytical techniques and tools for computational social science. The acquisition of computational skills will enable them to make full use of the new resources for social science research, available through the infrastructure.

The Hub is a work stream in the ODISSEI Roadmap project. The other work streams are the Data FacilityObservatory, and Laboratory.

The Hub consists of five closely interrelated tasks:

  1. Community management
  2. Educational programme
  3. Social data science team
  4. Benchmarking
  5. Grants for computational social science
