Now accepting applications for working groups!
In line with our mission to foster collaboration across a broad range of disciplines related to environmental data science, the Environmental Data Science Innovation & Inclusion Lab is now accepting applications for working groups. 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.
Please download this folder containing the three templates required in the proposal & follow the workflow as listed in the RFP.
Proposals must be submitted in PDF format to email@example.com by November 1, 2023. Funding decisions will be announced by early 2024, with anticipated start dates of Working Groups as early as February 2024.
