Announcing the Northeast Big Data Hub Seed Fund Program

The Northeast Big Data Hub is delighted to announce our Seed Fund program this month. Designed to promote collaboration in data science, the Seed Fund will encourage the cross-pollination of ideas, data and tools across disciplines and sectors including academia, industry, government, and communities. Funding provided through this program is intended to support people and organizations within the Northeastern United States, and align with the Major Goals and Focus Areas of the Northeast Big Data Hub.

“We’re excited to welcome proposals and applications from colleagues throughout the Northeastern U.S., including those who may be learning about the Northeast Hub for the first time,” said David Bader, Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at New Jersey Institute of Technology and Northeast Big Data Hub Seed Fund Steering Committee Chair. “The Seed Fund grants provide an opportunity for faculty, students, postdocs, and leaders from non-profit organizations to receive funding support for their work. Those interested in the Northeast Student Data Corps will have the opportunity to help shape an inclusive community program teaching data science fundamentals to students in need.”

Two programs are open for applications as part of the 2020 Seed Fund program – learn more about them via the links below:
