Netherlands eScience Center launches new Call for Proposals: Innovative eScience Technologies for "Big Science" (eTEC-BIG)


25 Mar 2019 Amsterdam - The new call for proposals "Innovative eScience Technologies for Big Science" (eTEC-BIG) is open. The Netherlands eScience Center invites 'Big Science' researchers and ICT researchers to apply for funding to address innovative compute-intensive and/or data-driven research problems.

This call for proposals aims to support research and development of innovative eScience technologies and software associated with Big Data handling, Big Data analytics and related computational methods, driven by a direct demand from any research area that can be identified broadly by the term 'Big Science'.

In the context of this call, 'Big Science' broadly indicates those scientific research directions 1) whose challenges in terms of complexity and 2) whose needs in terms of data analytics and data management capabilities, as well as processing power, far exceed that of other research endeavours today. Typically, technological developments in Big Science domains are expected to arrive in - and impact - other (non-Big Science) domains only years or even decades later.

Each project must focus on one of the following 'Technological Research Directions':

I. Scalable Machine Learning & AI

II. Processing of Streaming Data

III. Large-scale (Distributed) Data Organisation, Management & Semantics

Projects awarded in this call for proposals typically will be led by either:

  • a technology-oriented PI from the selected Big Science research area, or
  • a domain-oriented PI from ICT Science (i.e. a technical discipline such as data science or computer science). In this case, it is required to include at least one co-applicant & team member from the selected Big Science research area.

The deadline for the submission of pre-proposals is 9 May 2019, 14:00 CET.

The deadline for submission of full proposals is 29 August 2019, 14:00 CET.

To further inform interested applicants of the specific aims of this call for proposals, the mission and approach of both the eScience Center and SURFsara, the role and expertise of the eScience Research Engineers and the SURFsara Technology & e-infrastructure Experts, the software technologies implemented and applied by the eScience Center and SURFsara, and the specific capabilities of the Dutch National e-Infrastructure, an information event will be organized at Amsterdam Science Park on April 9, 2019. Registration is required. Presence of at least one team member at the event is highly recommended, but not mandatory.

Programme:

13:30 - 14:00 Arrival & Coffee

14:00 - 14:20 General introduction: eTEC-BIG Call for Proposals

14:20 - 14:50 Netherlands eScience Center & Core Technological Competences

14:50 - 15:20 SURFsara, Technological Expertise & SURF e-Infrastructure

15:20 - 15:30 Break

15:30 - 16:00 Examples of ongoing eScience & SURFsara projects

16:00 - 16:30 Remaining questions

16:30 Drinks
