Trans-Atlantic Platform Call for Proposals “Digging into Data”

This call for proposals is now closed. You can view all open calls for proposals by clicking here.

The T-AP “Digging into Data” call addresses humanities and/or social sciences research questions by using innovative research techniques to analyse large and/or complex datasets and show how these new techniques can lead to new theoretical insights.

Projects can propose to develop new tools and methods, but always with the goal of (better) improving how pertinent humanities and/or social sciences research questions can be addressed and describing what new theoretical insights these technical and methodological innovations will give rise to.

The four overarching goals of the T-AP Digging into Data Challenge are to

  • Address humanities and social sciences research questions by using innovative research techniques in large-scale data; and show how these new techniques can lead to new theoretical insights;
  • Stimulate trans-Atlantic research collaborations that provide added value to digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, i.e., above what can be accomplished by single nation’s efforts;
  • Foster interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers in the humanities, social sciences, computer sciences, library science, archival science, information sciences, mathematical and statistical sciences, engineering, and other fields, around questions of data analysis; and
  • Promote efficient access to and sharing of the materials for research by working with data repositories that hold large digital collections.
