The School of Data Science is now accepting research proposals for the summer 2020 seed grants for data science funding cycle. This grant opportunity provides up to $20,000 per award, a grand total of $60,000, in funding for UNC Charlotte and partnering faculty and researchers. The School of Data Science is committed to identifying and supporting pre-competitive research proposals focused on cutting-edge concepts that demonstrate the potential to secure larger external grants in the future.
At the core of the School of Data Science lies an interdisciplinary nature for research and real-world application. The purpose of this funding opportunity aims to support cross-disciplinary research projects, with the hope of fueling the collaborative spirit that already exists within the field of data science.
Proposals must be submitted by teams comprised primarily of UNC Charlotte researchers. Candidate teams will be multidisciplinary and draw personnel from at least two colleges, with at least one principal or co-principal researcher holding an affiliate or joint faculty appointment within the School of Data Science. While collaborators external to the University may be included, the focus is on supporting the formation of new research teams based at UNC Charlotte.
