Working groups will serve to foster collaboration across a broad range of disciplines related to environmental data science. These groups will play a pivotal role in promoting the integrative approach ESIIL champions, pooling knowledge and expertise from various disciplines to tackle environmental issues with a data-driven perspective. Please read the Request for Proposals (RFP) for more information.
What are working groups?
Working groups are self-organized research teams focused on well-defined scientific questions that advance environmental data science and require insights from a diverse group of researchers and other stakeholders. A single working group may have up to 15 participants and a quorum (50% or more) shall meet in person up to 2 times over a 2 year period, with each meeting lasting between 3 and 5 days.
We are no longer accepting applications for this year.
Proposals were due November 1, 2023. Funding decisions will be announced by early 2024, with anticipated start dates of Working Groups as early as February 2024.
Are you interested in joining a working group but don’t yet have a team or are you looking for collaborators to add to your proposal? Please email Rachel.Lieber@colorado.edu.
What’s the proposal review process?
All proposals will be reviewed based on the criteria outlined in the Request for Proposals document and project feasibility.
We look forward to receiving your proposals and working with you to advance environmental data science.
