The T-AP Digging into Data Challenge closed on June 30, 2016. The Platform thanks the many international teams that applied.
Funding decisions are expected to be announced in winter, 2017.
On March 1, 2016, The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) launched the 2016 T-AP Digging into Data Challenge to support research projects that use “big data” to address questions in the social sciences and humanities. Although this is the fourth Digging into Data challenge, it is the first time it has been sponsored by T-AP. The deadline for applications was June 30, 2016.
This funding opportunity is open to international projects that consist of teams from at least three member countries, and must include partners from both sides of the Atlantic. Projects must address any research question in humanities and/or social sciences disciplines by using large-scale, digital data analysis techniques, and show how these techniques can lead to new insights. Successful applicants will receive funding from their own national funding agencies for projects that can last for up to 36 months.
