Démarre SHS! - Start social sciences and humanities

Démarre SHS!”, a programme of the Data Institute Work Package 3 “Massive and Rich Data for Humanities” launches its first call for proposals.
The call aims at providing research teams with the necessary support to produce open data for Social Sciences and Humanities. Phd candidates, young researchers, associate professors, and engineers in social sciences and humanities involved in the project Initiative for Excellence (IDEX) are encouraged to submit proposals. The objective is to quickly give researchers and research teams the access to the shared resources of Démarre SHS! and possibly a small grant.

Deadline for applications is May 15. The call will be renewed annually, in March / April until 2020.
The Data Institute Work Package 3 “Massive and Rich Data for Humanities” aspires to re-dimension research in the humanities fields, from small isolated corpora of rich data to a large interconnected corpus of rich data. It covers scientific problems ranging from the massive production of rich data, to operating, querying and visualizing  voluminous data, through perennial preservation of the data and metadata, thus questioning methodology in humanity research.
