NIH Data Commons Pilot Phase Research Opportunity Announcement
Date: June 23, 2017

The purpose of the announcement is to invite applications from applicants who have an interest in performing high impact, cutting-edge scientific and computing activities necessary to establish an NIH Data Commons. The goal of the NIH Data Commons is to accelerate new biomedical discoveries by providing a cloud-based platform where investigators can store, share, access, and compute on digital objects (data, software, etc.) generated from biomedical research and perform novel scientific research including hypothesis generation, discovery, and validation. Applicants are encouraged to develop innovative approaches to one or more key computational, data, analytical and scientific capabilities of the Data Commons. These key capabilities are described in detail in the announcement.
