What we offer
We can help you with short consultations or full collaborations on your project.
Free for anyone at an ODISSEI member organisation
We regularly meet with social scientists to consult them on various issues surrounding data science, statistics, research engineering.
Whether it’s a half-hour conversation where we point you in the right direction, a brainstorm session about how to collect your data, or a longer session where we program something together, do not hesitate to get in contact!
Or join our monthly drop-in
Collaborate on a project
We work together with social scientists on longer projects where substantial involvement of the SoDa team is required. This could take various different forms. For these projects we start with a non-committal conversation about the goals and the requirements of the research project.
For examples of what we can do together, see the section below.

Here are some statements of people we collaborated with in the past.
I’m very happy with the help that I got, and if I would have any more questions in the future, I already know who to turn to.

It is very special that I can receive this support as a researcher who does not have the possibility to visualize this tool themselves.

When you put your assumptions aside and expose yourself, you realize how much you can grow as a researcher. I am very grateful for this collaboration, even if it would have led to a different outcome.

The first consultation was great. I understand what machine learning methods do on a conceptual level, but was unclear on what is actually involved in implementing these techniques. The SoDa team’s assistance was very helpful!
