Are you a young and ambitious researcher? Are you trying to solve challenging research questions in your domain? And are you using data-driven or compute-intensive methods? Then you might be the Young eScientist 2017!
The Netherlands eScience Center awards €50,000 worth of expertise to a novel eScience idea. Together with the eScience Center’s experts you will formulate your idea into a full project proposal. Submit your idea before 1st September 2017!
The grand societal challenges of the coming years, such as climate change, increased population size, resource scarcity and urbanization will require innovative scientific and technological interventions. Researchers are more and more required to rapidly develop ICT skills necessary to answer their ambitious research questions.
The prospect of developing the skills needed to engage increasingly diverse and complex digital technologies is daunting. The Netherlands eScience Center works together with discipline focused scientists to ensure that state-of-the-art computing and data-science is developed and applied in fields such as the Humanities & Social Sciences, Environment & Sustainability, Life Sciences & eHealth, and Physics & Beyond.
The prize will be awarded at the National eScience Symposium 2017 in the Amsterdam ArenA on 12th October 2017.
The prize will be awarded to a young scientist based on a combination of:
Candidates will submit an idea for a project (not the full proposal) to be judged by the award committee. The successful candidate will work with the eScience Center’s staff to formulate a full proposal. If data is required for the project idea, the data should be available at the start of the project. The full proposal will be formulated between the National eScience Symposium 2017 (12th October 2017) and 1st December 2017.
Submission only requires potential applicants to complete the short online procedure before 1st September 2017.
