Accelerating Scientific Discovery Call

Accelerating Scientific Discovery Call

This call is closed for 2017

We invite domains scientists working in application fields such as Environment & Sustainability or Life Sciences & eHealth to apply for funding.


The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to enable domain scientists to address compute-intensive and/or data-driven problems within their research.

The call aims to fund proposals that pursue new scientific domain challenges and that enhance and accelerate the process of scientific discovery within the field of application using eScience technologies. To achieve this, submitted proposals should 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 (the core technological competences of the eScience Center).

Projects awarded in this call typically will be led by PIs from domain science (application disciplines).

When to apply

The deadline for the submission of pre-proposals is 18 May 2017, 14:00 CEST.
The deadline for submission of full proposals is 31 August 2017 14:00 CEST.
