The Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) is arranging a writer’s workshop for proposals for projects to take on within the Bio- and Medical Sciences (BMS) area. Projects should have a 6-36 month duration, with involvement from 2 or preferably more Nordic countries, and should be for concrete, measurable e-infrastructure improvements in Nordic BMS. This can for example involve development of innovative storage or computation services tailored to BMS needs, or improving security or features in BMS software to enable safer use or higher quality research.
Project ideas at any stage of maturity are welcome. This workshop can be of use both as a means to get quick feedback to improve an already mature proposal, and as a brainstorming session to come up with new ideas for Nordic collaboration, or anything in between.
The proposals generated by this workshop will be evaluated by a board of leading Nordic scientists, and will guide future activities within NeIC BMS. The projects that are taken on will be run by NeIC, and around 30% of salaries within the projects will be financed by NeIC. The remainder, including 100% of hardware costs, must be covered by collaborators.
