Are you a young and ambitious researcher? Are you a true collaborator, applying or developing research software to solve challenging research questions in your discipline? And do you share your solutions with your colleagues? Then you might be the Young eScientist 2018!
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 description. Submit your idea before 17 September 2018!
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 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 is 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 conference dinner of the 14th IEEE eScience Conference on Tuesday 30 October 2018, after which the winner will be announced.
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 17 September 2018.
