IDIES Seed Fund proposals due Jan. 31

The Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES) is seeking proposals of collaborative, multidisciplinary, data- and computation-intensive projects for its 2017 Seed Funding offering.

The goal of the IDIES Seed Fund Initiative is to provide seed funding for data-intensive computing projects relevant to IDIES and JHU institutional research priorities. Projects must be multidisciplinary, bringing together ideas and research groups with good prospects for successful proposals to attract additional external research support by leveraging IDIES' intellectual and physical infrastructure.

Eligible applicants are faculty and research scientists from multiple (at least two) departments at the Johns Hopkins University who can serve as principal and co-investigators, and who have not previously been selected to receive an IDIES Seed Funding Program award for the same collaboration and/or project in the past.

The total budget requests per team may not exceed $25,000. The project period begins March 1, 2017, and lasts up to one year.

Proposals are due by 5 p.m., Tuesday Jan. 31. Please apply on the IDIES website. Detailed instructions on submitting your application and many additional resources can be found on this site, as well.

Please contact Margie Gier ( if you experience technical difficulties completing your submission or are in need of further clarification regarding the requirements.

Please feel free to forward this request for proposals to other members of the Johns Hopkins research community who may wish to pursue this opportunity.
