Please consider attending this town hall meeting on the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) Challenge Thrust RFP to learn more about funding opportunities in “Data Science for Social Science.” MIDAS leadership will present an overview of this funding solicitation. Information on health and/or social science data sets available at the University will be presented. You will be able to ask questions regarding the RFP process, and meet other like-minded researchers to potentially form a multi-disciplinary team to respond to the solicitation. This MIDAS Challenge Thrust solicitation will fund up to two projects in “Data Science for Health Science” and two projects in “Data Science for Social Science” at a level of approximately $1.25 million per project. More details are at http://midas.umich.edu/rfp/. Your participation will help prompt a stimulating discussion about health sciences, social sciences, and data science methodologies, and frame projects that are responsive to this funding opportunity.
