Are you a young and ambitious researcher? Do you have a talent for collaborating with others and for applying or developing research software to solve challenging research questions in your field? And do you always make a point of sharing your solutions with fellow researchers? If yes, then you might just be our Young eScientist 2019.
The Netherlands eScience Center awards €50,000 worth of expertise to a novel eScience idea. Together with our experts, you will develop your idea into a full project description. Submit your idea before October 1, 2019
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 increasingly required to develop and apply research software 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 are developed and applied in fields such as the Humanities & Social Sciences, Environment & Sustainability, Life Sciences & eHealth, and Physics & Beyond.
Out of the applications, three nominees will be selected. The nominees will be invited to give a short pitch at the National eScience Symposium on November 21, 2019. The winner will be announced after the pitches.
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 description. If data is required for the project idea, the data should be available at the start of the project.
Submission only requires potential applicants to complete the short online procedure before 1 October, 2019.
