T-AP Digging into Data Challenge

T-AP Digging into Data Challenge

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 was 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 opportunity funded international teams (with members from) at least three countries and both sides of the Atlantic. Funded projects are addressing research questions from social sciences and humanities discipline by using large-scale, digital data analysis techniques.

The following research funders participated in the 2016 T-AP Digging into Data Challenge. Please visit the Digging into Data website for more information.
