Collaborative research projects: Research grants will be offered for early-stage projects focused on data science methods, tools, or theory, executed by multidisciplinary teams from multiple departments/units. Awards should be used to collect pilot/preliminary data, results, or analysis that can lead to external collaborative grant applications (such as NIH R01). Awards will be available for up to $100,000 for a period of 12 months.
Exploratory convenings: This opportunity welcomes proposals that support workshops, invited speaker talks, working groups, or other convenings focused on novel, interdisciplinary, data-driven or computing research topics. Awards should provide planning support to facilitate the development of grant proposals or collaborative projects. Awards will be available for up to $15,000 for a period of 12 months.
