"Digging into Data" funding competition opens

last modified Mar 16, 2016 08:48 AM
The Digging into Data Challenge 2016 will support research projects that explore and apply new “big data” sources and methodologies to address questions in the social sciences and humanities.

The funding opportunity is open to projects that address any research question in humanities and/or social sciences disciplines by using new, large-scale, digital data analysis techniques. All projects must show how these techniques can lead to new theoretical insights. Proposed projects can use any data source. The Challenge is being hosted by the Transatlantic Platform (T-AP)

About T-AP

The Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) is an unprecedented collaboration between key humanities and social science funders and facilitators from South America, North America and Europe.

T-AP aims to enhance the ability of funders, research organizations and researchers to engage in transnational dialogue and collaboration. Among other activities, it works to identify common challenges and emerging priorities in social science and humanities research. T-AP also facilitates the formation of networks within the social sciences and humanities and helps connect them with other disciplines.

Read the RFP and find application materials on the Digging into Data website here. Please get in touch with DH Network Coordinator Dr Anne Alexander (raa43 @ cam.ac.uk) if you are a Cambridge researcher interested in applying or if you are looking for potential collaborators from Cambridge for your team.

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
