Data Intensive Research in the Social Behavioral and Economic Sciences (RIDIR) Deadline February 23, 2015
January 5, 2015 by fgallon1
The goal of this competition is to produce one or both of two types of finished products:
- Databases which may be a new large scale database, a substantial expansion or revision of an extant database, or the merging of extant databases. Databases might include traditional relational data in digital form, collections of historical data, images, video recordings, administrative data/records or any other form of structured sets of data.
- Analytic tool(s) which would serve to enhance database use to address significant research questions.
Successful proposals will describe products that will have significant impacts by enabling new types of data-intensive research. These products should be fundamental and generalizable rather than narrow and specific. Database proposals should define/identify a resource that can be used to answer scientific questions that could not otherwise be addressed. Analytic tool development proposals should be directed towards the same goal of enabling researchers to address new and significant SBE science questions. Investigators are encouraged to think broadly and to create a vision that extends intellectually to more than one SBE area of research potentially linking to other fields of science as well.
