From the University of Groningen (UG) ICT multi-annual plan 2016-2020, a total of fourteen project proposals have been awarded to researchers at the UG and the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG).
In the 'Call for Proposals Visualisatie, Geo en Data Science 2021' CIT invited researchers to submit innovative project proposals that focus on visualization, geo and data science, which can make an important contribution to science. The proposals were assessed by a group of experts in the field of visualization, geo and data science from within and outside the UG.
Researchers of the awarded projects will receive a material budget of a maximum of € 3,000 and a maximum of 400 hours of support from CIT experts in the field of XR, data science geo data science and visualization.
This year a remarkable number of interdisciplinary proposals were submitted. For example, there was a claim to expertise in both geo and data science. These projects have the potential to build new bridges between different scientific fields.
