We wish to strengthen interdisciplinary research in Denmark with a new initiative focusing on the interdisciplinary field of data driven science.
Compelling evidence shows that interdisciplinary research is markedly more effective at leading to ground-breaking results than monodisciplinary research. Digitalisation, artificial intelligence and big data calls for new collaborations that combine expertise within computer science with other research areas.
Who can apply?
Projects should involve two PIs (Principal Investigators) that are both affiliated with a Danish research institution.
The time frame is up to two years for initiation project grants and three to five years for full project grants.
Approval of grant
The duration will be approx. six months from application to grant.
The application process
Proposals are evaluated on the sole criterion of scientific excellence. The proposals will be assessed by a scientific committee and granted by the board. The process will include peer review and interview for the full project proposals which pass the scientific committee’s first assessment.
