On 12 and 15 February, the granting of fourteen new collaborative projects was celebrated at the Netherlands eScience Center. The new collaborations between the eScience Center and research teams from different Dutch universities will start in the first half of 2018.
During this day, several new collaborators of the eScience Center pitched their projects. Subsequently, the challenges and opportunities of the new collaborations were discussed in smaller groups together with eScience Research Engineers from the eScience Center.
The aim was to create an opportunity for the new Principal Investigators to benefit from the combined knowledge of the eScience Research Engineers at an early stage. eScience Research Engineers have knowledge of both academic research and software development, which can help define and solve research challenges.
We are looking forward to these new collaborations, through which we hope to advance not the just the projects itself but academic research in general.
