Eight new eScience projects to start in 2017


Sagar - Colony of Collared Sand Martins. The eEcoLiDAR project will reconstruct 3D ecosystem structures and apply these in species distribution models for breeding birds in forests and marshlands, for insect pollinators in agricultural landscapes, and songbirds at stopover sites during migration. This will allow novel insights into the hierarchical structure of animal-habitat associations, into why animal populations decline, and how they respond to habitat fragmentation and ongoing land use change.
5 Dec 2016 Amsterdam - The Netherlands eScience Center has initiated eight new projects in the areas of Environment & Sustainability, Life Sciences & eHealth, Humanities & Social Sciences, Physics & Beyond and Disruptive Computer & Data Science.

The projects are the result of the 2016 Accelerating Scientific Discovery (ASDI) and Disruptive Technologies (DTEC) Calls. The 2016 DTEC call was organized in collaboration with the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research Physical Sciences (NWO) and Commit2Data.

Scheduled to start in 2017, the projects are collaborations with research teams from multiple Dutch academic groups and represent the latest step in the continued development of the eScience Center's project portfolio.

In the 2016 ASDI project call the following projects were selected:

1. eEcoLiDAR: eScience infrastructure for Ecological applications of LiDAR point clouds - Dr. rer. nat. W. Daniel Kissling, University of Amsterdam

2. Emotion Recognition in Dementia: Advancing technology for multimodal analysis of emotion expression in everyday life - Prof. dr. Gerben Westerhof, University of Twente, Enschede

3. DIRAC: DIstributed Radio Astronomical Computing - Dr. Sarod B. Yatawatta, ASTRON, Dwingeloo

4. Googling the cancer genome: Identification and prioritization of relevant structural variations in whole genome sequencing data of cancer patients - Dr. ir. Jeroen de Ridder, University Medical Center Utrecht

5. DeepRank: Scoring 3D protein-protein interaction models using deep learning - Prof. Dr. Alexandre M.J.J. Bonvin, Utrecht University

In the 2016 DTEC project call the following projects were selected:

6. A methodology and ecosystem for many-core programming - Prof. dr. ir. Henri E. Bal, VU University Amsterdam

7. Visual Storytelling of Big Imaging Data - Prof. dr. Jos Roerdink, University of Groningen (RUG)

8. Accelerating Astronomical Applications 2 (Triple-A 2) - Dr. John W. Romein, ASTRON, Dwingeloo

The Netherlands eScience Center receives an annual budget from NWO and SURF, the majority of which is provided to Dutch academics as subsidy in the form of cash and the in kind provision of eScience Research Engineers.

The awarding of both cash and expertise makes the eScience Center unique, balancing the role of both funder and collaborator. Large projects are supported to the value of 500K euro, combined cash and in kind provision of eScience Research Engineers, and result from annual peer-reviewed project calls.

The eight projects resulted from two recent calls (ASDI & DTEC).

The purpose of the 2016 ASDI call is to enable domain scientists, working in application fields of Environment & Sustainability, Humanities & Social Sciences, Life Sciences & eHealth, or Physics & Beyond, to address compute-intensive and/or data-driven problems within their research.

The purpose of the DTEC call is to support computer and data scientists in the research and development of novel eScience technologies and software.
