Introduction meeting for CBS Microdata and launch of Microdata Access Grant (MAG)
21 January 2019
On Tuesday, February 19, 2019, there will be an introductory meeting for starting researchers on the use of CBS Microdata. During the meeting insight is provided into the available Microdata, the practical process to work with the data, and the conditions and costs. The event introduces researchers to CBS Microdata in an accessible way.
CBS enables researchers to use Microdata (linkable data at personal, company and address level) under certain conditions. Not all researchers know about this potentially very valuable data for statistical research. That is why ODISSEI is organizing, together with CBS, an introductory meeting on Tuesday 19 February 2019 for the use of CBS Microdata, aimed at researchers who have no experience with Microdata.
The Microdata Access Grants 2019 will also be launched at this meeting. From the 2019 pilot year, ODISSEI will enable five researchers associated with an ODISSEI participant to use CBS Microdata free of charge through the Microdata Access Grant (MAG). Starting researchers are particularly invited to submit a proposal. The grant applies to projects that ODISSEI participants carry out within their own research program, as is the case with first and second funding stream research and research projects that are financed with European Commission funds. The grant offers an opportunity to use Microdata for your own medium-sized research, free of charge. In addition, regular projects from ODISSEI participants receive a 50% discount.
Proposals for MAG must be submitted no later than 30 April 2019. Approved projects start in the second half of 2019. The event starts at 13:30 (walk-in at 13:00) and takes place at CBS The Hague. The working language is English and participation is free of charge. More information and registration at the ODISSEI website.
