Submissions for the current cycled closed July 24, 2020. Subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on Twitter to learn about future opportunities.

We invite proposals for collaborative activities that will further develop the MBDH community in at least one of the Hub’s five Priority Areas and / or one of the Hub’s cross-cutting theme areas of Data Science Education and Cyberinfrastructure:

  1. Water Quality
  2. Smart, Connected, and Resilient Communities
  3. Advanced Materials and Manufacturing
  4. Health and Biomedicine
  5. Digital Agriculture

We particularly encourage activities that bring together partners from academia, industry, government, and NGOs / not-for-profit organizations, and that introduce new partners to data science, including historically underrepresented groups.

Individual investigator research projects are outside the scope of this call.
