The eScience Center and CLARIAH have launched a new call: Accelerating Scientific Discovery in the Arts and Humanities.
The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to enable researchers working in the Arts and Humanities to address compute-intensive and/or data-driven problems within their research and to contribute to a generic and sustainable eScience infrastructure.
The deadline for the mandatory proposal abstract is 15 November 2016, 14:00 CET and the deadline for full proposals is 16 December 2016, 14:00 CET. More information can be found here.
The final report on the ePLAN survey on the national ICT-infrastructure is now available! Download here (PDF) or visit the survey results page.
PLAN-E, the European sister-organization to ePLAN, officially met with R.J. Smits, DG Research&Innovation, during the ESFRI Roadmap Update launch event!
Four workshops on the national ICT infrastructure have taken place at the eScience Center in Amsterdam, around the topics:
