April 8, 2016

The Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC), Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research Physical Sciences (NWO), and Dutch Digital Delta invite technology-oriented researchers to apply for funding and support for researching disruptive eScience technologies.

PurposeThis call for proposals aims at research and development of disruptive solutions associated with big data handling, big data analytics and related computational methods in order to be able to address novel cross-sectoral scientific challenges described in the COMMIT2DATA White Paper. A successful project should address (a) domain challenge(s) from one or more sectors using novel digital technologies and data science methods that are studied and developed within the project. When to applyThe deadline for the submission of pre-proposals is Tuesday 17 May, 14:00 CEST. The deadline for submission of full proposals is Tuesday 30 August 14:00 CEST. Submission of a full proposal is possible only after participation in the pre-proposal round. Information EventTo allow all interested applicants to get acquainted with the approach and structure of the Netherlands eScience Center, the role of the eScience Research Engineers, and with the technologies being implemented and applied by NLeSC, an information event will be organized at NLeSC on 12 April 2016. Registration is required, and can be done using the registration form at the bottom of this page. Presence of at least one projected team member at the information event is recommended, but not mandatory. The agenda for the information event is as follows: 13:30 - 14:15 Introduction Call for Proposals and NL eScience Center (Wilco Hazeleger);14:15 - 14:45 Software and knowledge platform eStep (Rob van Nieuwpoort);14:45 - 15:15 Experiences with projects by 2 eScience Research Engineers; Tea/coffee15:30 - 16:00 SURF e-Infrastructure (Jan Bot SURF Support4Research)16:00 - 16:30 Remaining questions and issues
