NWO T-AP Digging into Data

T-AP Digging into Data

The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) has 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. 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. Countries that are participating in T-AP DiD are: Canada, United States of America, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Portugal. 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.

The deadline for submitting T-AP DiD proposals is June 29 2016. Proposals must be submitted via the online submission system of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
