2019 Awardees

15 interdisciplinary teams, chosen from 65 proposals, received funding support for projects with data science as the common thread.  Researchers on these projects are from 9 schools and colleges across the Ann Arbor and Dearborn campuses. For this set of projects, MIDAS provided a total of $860K of funding, and cost sharing from U-M departments and faculty amounted to an additional $220K.  This funding mechanism strongly encourages pioneering work based on innovative concepts that promises high reward, major impact, promotion of public interest, and potential for major expansion; in other words,“disruptive” instead of incremental research.
