eScience Tools and Techniques
The Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative (NeGI) has recently granted funding for the establishment of three Nordic Centres of Excellence in two different areas: eScience in Climate and Environmental Research and eScience in Health and Social Preconditions to Health.
To complement the efforts in these and other fields, the NeGI Steering Committee has now decided to allocate funding for the development of more generic research projects in the area of eScience Tools and Techniques. All research groups within these fields are encouraged to apply (participation from a minimum of three different Nordic countries is required).
There is a need for development in the form of new theories, models, methods, algorithms and software to aid in the application of computer and data-intensive resources.
A maximum of NOK 4 million may be sought for a project period of 3–4 years. As with all NordForsk research projects, binding institutional commitment from at least three Nordic countries is required. The project manager must be from one of the NeGI co-funding countries, i.e. Finland, Norway or Sweden.
