Call for Applications opened for DATA2PERSON - Big Data and Health

20 Apr 2017 Amsterdam - The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has opened the call for applications with regard to DATA2PERSON - Big Data & Health. This call, as part of the COMMIT2DATA programme, aims to contribute to the development of effective, efficient, and responsible personal empowerment methods for a future healthy society. Consortiums of at least two academic departments and at least one public/private partner can apply for funding. The deadline for full proposals is 5 September 2017, 14.00 hours CEST.

Consortiums of academics and public/private parties can apply for funding for the development of effective, efficient, and responsible personal empowerment methods that promote a healthy society in the future.

This call is a partnership between COMMIT2DATA, NWO Domain Science (ENW) and Domain Social Sciences and Humanities (SGW), Applied and Engineering Sciences (TTW), National Initiative Brain & Cognition (NIHC), The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMW), and the Ministry of Economic Affairs. The call is formulated and rolled out in consultation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare, and Sport (VWS).

With this call for the COMMIT2DATA programme, NWO, ZonMW, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs stimulate Big Data Research (Data Science) to contribute to the development of effective, efficient, and responsible personal empowerment methods for a future healthy society in partnership with other scientific disciplines. The focus of this programme is on the way in which Data Science can make a contribution to a personalized offer and possibilities for the self/joint management of the individual health situation. Important questions relating to this call are: What works and what doesn't? Why? Or why not? For who does it work, and for who doesn't it?

Applications can be submitted on behalf of consortiums consisting of at least two academic departments from a research institute or institutes and one public or private partner that alone, or together with multiple private and public partners, meets the private/public matching criteria.

The principal applicant is an experienced researcher with a PhD who has a tenured or temporary appointment at a Dutch university or a research institute recognized by the NWO for the duration of the application process and the project. The same standards apply to academic co-applicants.

Private and public partners may be co-applicants and are not eligible to receive NWO funding, but contribute in cash and/or in kind to the research.

Researchers from universities of applied sciences, TO2 federation organisations, national institutes, and the non-university part of Wageningen University & Research may act as co-applicants as knowledge institutes but are not eligible to receive NWO funding.

More information is available at the NWO website.
