24 November: ODISSEI Community Conference reminder

In only a week's time, the ODISSEI Community Conference will take place, on Tuesday 24 November at 14:00 hours. The complete programme with short abstracts is now available online. It is still possible to register. 

The afternoon includes presentations on the many opportunities ODISSEI offers researchers, on recently conducted groundbreaking research projects, and on the current issues that challenge digital infrastructures. A panel discussion on the role of social sciences during the coronacrisis will conclude the programme. 

During the breaks, it is possible to meet each other digitally. In a variety of rooms you can meet Management Board members to discuss the possibilities of the LISS panel, using CBS microdata and the Secure Supercomputer; or talk to Scientific Director Pearl Dykstra about the future of ODISSEI.

ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer open for new projects

Since the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer's (OSSC) launch in October, the first projects have started within the secure environment. Furthermore, CBS and SURF have published extensively on the possibilities the OSSC offers. The Supercomputer has very strong computing powers to execute complex calculations at an unprecedented speed. The OSSC is open for use by researchers affiliated with an ODISSEI member organisation, who can indicate their interest via the button below. Terms of use for researchers outside of ODISSEI are currently being established. Those who are interested in using the OSSC can indicate their interest via the button below.

ODISSEI Roadshow possibilities

ODISSEI offers many possibilities to researchers affiliated with a member organisation. ODISSEI’s Community Managers would be happy to visit your faculty or department to share the possibilities ODISSEI offers that could be interesting to you. In a (for now digital) meeting of about an hour, they will present ODISSEI’s facilities, with room for questions and further discussion.

Economic opportunities are associated with the neighborhood where people grew up

A new interactive website developed by economist Bastian Ravesteijn (Erasmus School of Economics) and his research team shows stark differences in economic opportunities depending on the area in the Netherlands where people spend their childhood. Using pseudonymized Dutch data on a million people in their mid-thirties, they investigate to what extent the place where a person grows up is associated with income at a later age. In October, Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant published extensively on these results. This research project was supported by the ODISSEI Microdata Access Discount.

New edition of E-data

In October, the new edition of E-data & Research was published. This edition features articles about the consequences of COVID-19 for research in the social sciences and humanities. It highlights a number of research projects on the corona crisis that have already been executed. This E-data furthermore includes an interview with Claes de Vreese, one of the initiators of the Platform Digital Infrastructure SSH. Of course this issue also shares the news that ODISSEI received a large Roadmap grant from NWO.
