Information for researchers

TSS extends a warm welcome to academics, researchers, and policy makers from both Belgium and abroad to use the TSS panel for their research projects. The panel offers a broad range of opportunities to study diverse topics within the different fields of science.

Researchers from all scientific disciplines can apply to field their own surveys within the TSS panel against payment, and/or to make use of the already collected data for free. Researchers conducting their surveys within TSS have exclusive access to the collected data for their specific study. After a period of 12 months, the data will be published in the SODHA archive, becoming available for use by other researchers upon completion of a data use agreement.

TSS administers a yearly core study questionnaire (French / Dutch) that captures essential socio-demographic, behavioral, and attitudinal information among all panel members. The core study questionnaire aims to make this data available for free to the scientific community, minimizing the need to repeat basic inquiries in your own survey within the TSS panel (e.g., education level or household composition).

For detailed information on the application process to access the panel for data collection and how to effectively utilize the data, we encourage you to visit our dedicated researchers’ website. This website will provide comprehensive guidance and support for utilizing the TSS panel in your research projects.

“Research is formalized curiosity.
It is poking and prying with a purpose.”
