Collaborate with us

Would you like Research Software Engineers with specific skills to collaborate with you on your research project? We are interested to hear from you. Get in touch with us if you want to know more or take a look at our where we focus.

Collaborations between academic partners and the eScience Center are primarily based on projects that address a pressing research problem and deliver innovative and reusable eScience tools and methodologies. Collaboration can be set up in three different ways:

1. Open calls for proposals

The majority of projects performed in collaboration with the eScience Center are based on a long-term consistent program of calls. Researchers and research teams employed at a Dutch university or NWO/KNAW institute may apply for eScience Center funding as main applicant or as co-applicant. Some exceptions may apply, and we therefore refer to the details of each individual call.

View our latest calls for proposals or email Frank Seinstra.

2. Partnering in project consortia / proposals

The eScience Center welcomes requests by research consortia and individual researchers to partner in project proposals in (inter)national funding programs (e.g. EU-H2020). The eScience Center has ample experience in co-authoring project proposals, and already partners in a large number of projects granted by external funding bodies.

For more information, please email Rob van Nieuwpoort.

3. Direct collaboration

In case you already have funding available, and would like to tap into the advanced expertise of the eScience Center, it is possible to request a direct collaboration with us. The general aims of such a direct collaboration would be similar to all our other projects (i.e. address an urgent research problem and deliver reusable eScience), but we are very much interested to discuss with you how we can best achieve impact in your particular case.

For more information, please email Frank Seinstra.

The eScience Center can also provide a range of experts available to give guest lectures, keynote speeches, tailored workshops, and/or software demonstrations. Please reach out here if you have a proposal or project in mind.
