LISS call closed

Researchers associated with ODISSEI member organisations have been applying for free data collecting through the LISS panel in recent months. The LISS panel is managed by CentERdata and includes some 7,000 members of around 4,500 households. It is representative of the population register maintained by Statistics Netherlands (CBS).

In all, 39 applications have been submitted, which demonstrates great interest in this data collection opportunity. Which applications will be honoured is expected to be announced in early December. ODISSEI intends to launch a new call with similar conditions in the spring of 2020.

LISS project from 2018 to study tonic immobility

Via the 2018 LISS call, nine projects were given the opportunity to collect data from the LISS panel. One such project is "Playing dead – Mapping the consequences of tonic immobility" by researchers Muriel Hagenaars (Utrecht University) and Jacques Hagenaars (Tilburg University).

Tonic immobility is a relatively unknown reaction to an extremely dangerous situation, in which the victim becomes paralyzed with fear. Although this reaction may have an immediate positive effect, it increases the risk of psychiatric problems in the longer term, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or dissociative symptoms.

In their project, Hagenaars and Hagenaars investigate when and how tonic immobility leads to PTSD. It is estimated that 4,830 to 6,279 of the 7,000 panel members will have had a traumatic experience, of whom around 1,000 developed PTSD. The questionnaire will consist of 30 items about tonic immobility, trauma and PTSD symptoms, as well as mediating and moderating factors.

ODISSEI session at eScience Symposium

On Thursday 21 November, the Netherlands eScience Center is organising its sixth annual National eScience Symposium at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. This year's theme will be "Digital Challenges in Open Science".

In the afternoon ODISSEI representatives are set to host a 1.5-hour session, where they will present the various components of the digital research infrastructure, including the online open access panel, microdata access via Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and the use of the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer (OSSC) via SURFsara. These different components will demonstrate the broad spectrum of research which ODISSEI facilitates in the social sciences.
