An overview about ODISSEI

Intervenant : Tom Emery (professeur associé à l’Erasmus University Rotterdam & directeur d’ODESSEI (the dutch national infrastructure for social science)) ; discutant : Nicolas Sauger (professeur à Sciences Po, directeur CDSP, Science Po, CNRS)

The Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations (ODISSEI) equips social scientists in the Netherlands with the data, tools, and skills that are necessary to answer groundbreaking questions for scientific and policy making purposes. With a variety of use cases to pick from, we aim at engaging in a discussion with other Research data infrastructures to identify synergies but also challenges ahead. The infrastructure allows researchers to conduct experiments in a high-quality representative and probability based panel. This panel has been in operation for 15 years and interviews the same 8,000 residents of the Netherlands every month. The responses from this panel, as well as survey data from international data collections such as the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe, can then be linked to Administrative Data and analyzed in a secure, virtual environment along with around 500 other data files from the National Statistical Office. Information about ODISSEI and the services it offers can be found on our website.

Biographie de Tom Emery :

I am Associate Professor at Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Director of ODISSEI (http://www.odissei-data.nl/), the Dutch National Infrastructure for Social Science, where I am responsible for the strategic development of the infrastructure and international collaborations. I’m deeply passionate about improving social science data and the infrastructure that is needed for its collection, processing and dissemination. I believe that the social sciences can help us understand and improve society, but to do so we must improve and diversify the data we use in social research. Because of this, I am a strong advocate of open science and the FAIR principles. I also conduct research on family sociology and demographic behaviour. Good demographic data is the vital basis for understanding all manner of social issues from changes in consumer trends through to assessing environmental impacts. You need to know how many people there are, and who they are.
