Upcoming Opportunities

Ten International Research Funders Announce Round Three of the Digging into Data Challenge

Deadline: May 15, 2013

This year ten international research funders representing Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, are jointly announcing their participation in round three of the Digging into Data Challenge, a grant competition designed to spur computationally intensive research in the humanities and social sciences.

The Digging into Data Challenge aims to address how "big data" changes the research landscape for the humanities and social sciences. As the world becomes increasingly digital, new techniques will be needed to search, analyze, and understand these materials. Digging into Data challenges the research community to help create the new research infrastructure for 21st-century scholarship.

Applicants will form international teams from at least two of the participating countries. Winning teams will receive grants from two or more of the funding agencies and, two years later, will be invited to show off their work at a special conference sponsored by the ten funders.

Final applications will be due May 15, 2013.
