Towards a sustainable Open Data ECOsystem

ODECO

ODECO is a 4-year Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network initiative (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2020, grant agreement 955569). The central aim of the ODECO consortium network is to train the next generation of creative and innovative early stage open data researchers, to unlock their creative and innovative potential to address current and future challenges in the creation of user driven, circular and inclusive open data ecosystem.

The programme runs between October 2021 and September 2025 and will deliver 15 PhD degrees, in joint supervision and training between the public and private sectors.

PROJECTS

ODECO offers 15 PhD projects for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), each of them covering a specific part of the open data ecosystem supervised by leading European beneficiaries.

Are you passionate about research with impact? Do you want to be part of an excellent, world-leading team of engaged open data researchers and practitioners?

ODECO offers 15 ESRs positions. Check out the 15 open individual projects below or in the ESR Vacancy Info Pack and apply before the end of August 2021!

TRAINING

Distributed among the 8 beneficiaries, 15 ESRs will be recruited and involved in the ODECO training programme. Being part of the ODECO network offers unique possibilities for individual fellow research trainings, an online training programme, and five training weeks hosted at European project beneficiaries for all ESRs. Training will be delivered through 5 types of training activities:

  1. Individual Fellow’s Research Trainings are the primary means through which ESRs obtain essential skills, knowledge and experience, by working on the Research and Training Objectives under guidance from researchers and supervisors in academic and industrial sectors.
  2. The Introductory Online Training Programme aims to create a common vocabulary within the consortium and introducing the ESRs to the basic concepts of open data. Project lead: TU Delft.
  3. ODECO Training Weeks. ODECO will implement five training weeks each dedicated to one of the ODECO challenges:
    – Training week 1: ‘Understanding open data as an ecosystem’. Project lead: AAU.
    – Training week 2: ‘Towards a user driven open data ecosystem’. Project lead: UNIZAR.
    – Training week 3: Towards a circular open data ecosystem’. Project lead: UNICAM.
    – Training week 4: ‘Towards an inclusive open data ecosystem’. Project lead: KU LEUVEN.
    – Training week 5: ‘Towards the open data ecosystem’. Project lead: UAEGEAN.
  4. Consortium Meetings are meetings of all consortium members. During these meetings, the Supervisory Board will meet, using the ESR presentations to monitor training and research progress.
  5. Communication and Public Engagement Activities provide both training and outreach functions.

CONSORTIUM

The ODECO consortium is an integrated team of beneficiaries and partners. The beneficiaries are composed of European top universities and a research institute with extensive expertise in high-quality open data research, including both governance and technical aspects. The beneficiaries joined forces with a number of partner organizations, which results in a network in nine European countries (NL, BE, FR, ES, IT, EL, DK, IE, FI). Together, they are covering multiple domains from the public, private, academic, and non-profit sectors.

Supervisors

ESRs will be supervised at the host beneficiary by a team of experienced supervisors. Each supervisor has experience in supervising research. Each ESR will have an academic supervisor in the institute where they enrol. ESRs performing their training and research at a non-academic beneficiary will be supervised by an experienced supervisor from a university.

Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board is the primary management structure within ODECO. The SB is responsible for overseeing the quality of the network-wide training of ESRs and for ensuring that scientific/technological training is balanced with transferable skills training appropriate to the needs of each recruited researcher. The Supervisory Board will also oversee the quality and quantity of supervision of the ESRs.

Project coordination

The project coordination in ODECO is performed at two levels:

  1. The scientific coordination performed by Dr.ir. Bastiaan van Loenen (TU Delft) for the scientific development of the project. The main responsibility is to ensure that the main goals of the project are pursued and to verify the quality of all deliverables resulting from the project. The scientific coordinators will cooperate closely with Work Package Leaders to guarantee that the project delivers the expected impact.
  2. The project coordinator Danitsja van Heusden-van Winden (TU Delft) assists the scientific coordinator and the consortium on financial, legal, administrative as well as on organizational matters.

The scientific coordinator and the project coordinator work closely together to guarantee a smooth project communication internally (within the project) and act as the intermediary between the project beneficiaries and the external funding authority the European Union and the public at large.
