Open Call: Je Data de Baas 2
We produce and use data every day, actively and passively. Therefore we play a crucial role in the data society, but in this role we are not an equal player. In fact, in exchange for ‘free’ services, we are often passive data suppliers instead of being in charge of our own data.
As data becomes more and more important as a raw material for the digital society, the question of the impact of this development on internet users is increasingly relevant.
The call ‘Je data de baas 2‘ is now open. Deadline is Tuesday 28th April, 13:00.
The call will focus on:
- Insight & awareness
- Data minimization
- Alternative tools
The call is open to:
- Small experiments (contributions of up to €10,000 for a proof of concept, demo, pilot or experimental design).
- Larger and already tried and tested projects (contributions up to a maximum of €75,000 for the further development of an existing proof of concept, promising concepts or results of (scientific) research into useful applications).
The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) and Data Science Center (DSC) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) are joining forces in a new joint fellowship for (teams of) researchers interested in exploring the intersection of data science and other disciplines. The first fellow of the new program, Dr. Davide Ceolin, will start his fellowship at the IAS on June 17. Ceolin is currently affiliated with CWI.
