Netherlands eScience Center invites researchers to apply for funding

The Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC) has opened two calls that are of interest to DTL members: a call for Accelerating Scientific Discovery and a call for Disruptive Technologies.

Accelerating Scientific Discovery
The purpose of the call for Accelerating Scientific Discovery is to enable domain scientists, working in application fields of Environment & Sustainability, Humanities & Social Sciences, Life Sciences & eHealth, or Physics & Beyond, to address compute-intensive and/or data-driven problems within their research.

Successful proposals will pursue new scientific domain challenges and enhance and accelerate the process of scientific discovery within the field of application. To achieve this, the proposals will be characterized by the usage, adaptation, and integration of eScience methods and tools including software for optimized data handling, big data analytics, and efficient computing.

More information and a link to the electronic application system are available on the NLeSC website.

Disruptive Technologies
The call for Disruptive Technologies 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.

More information and a link to the electronic application system are available on the NLeSC website.

For both calls, the deadlines are:

  • submission of pre-proposals: Tuesday 17 May, 14:00 CEST
  • submission of full proposals: Tuesday 30 August 14:00 CEST

Submission of a full proposal is only possible after participation in the pre-proposal round.

Information Events

To 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, information events will be organized at NLeSC:

  • on 14 April 2016 for the call for Accelerating Scientific Discovery
  • on 12 April 2016 for the call for Disruptive Technologies

Registration for these events is required and can be done using the registration form on NLeSC’s website. Presence of at least one project team member at the information event is recommended, but not mandatory.
