Call for Online Research pilots

18 May 2020

The Center for Information Technology (CIT) and the Research Data Office (RDO) have now opened a call for 'Online Research pilot projects' that focus on the transition of (a part of) the research practice from the physical world towards an online solution. This call is open to all researchers employed by the UG/UMCG from all scientific fields.

The Corona pandemic and the resulting lockdown, including the closure of all university buildings and the effective shutdown of (inter)national mobility and academic events, has forced researchers and educators to adjust overnight to a world of remote research and education.

All UG staff is trying to cope with the adverse conditions of a crisis of which the end is not yet in sight. It does seem safe to assume, however, that the “new normal” academic world will blend ‘on campus’ and ‘online’ even more than we have been accustomed to. Therefore, the Board of the University and the CIT wish to further stimulate and facilitate the implementation of online research and sharing of respective good practices.

Research support

A jury of scientific and technical specialists will select five applicant projects to be implemented in the new academic year. As a researcher, you will receive 40 hours of technical support (CIT) and 4 hours of data management support (RDO) and a budget of max. €1500.


The deadline for submission, through an online form, is Monday the 15th of June at 12h (noon).
