The second round of the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS) Challenge Initiatives is open, with the deadline for initial funding submissions on June 30.
Proposals will be funded at a level of approximately $1.25M each. A successful research proposal will involve a multi-disciplinary team engaged in research that will both have disruptive impact on a relevant thrust application and significantly advance the methodological foundations of data science. The ultimate intent of the MIDAS challenge initiatives is to stimulate research activities that can be leveraged into successful external funding proposals from government, private foundations, or industry.
