Dear Deans, Directors and Department Heads –
It is our pleasure to share with you the 2nd Call for Proposals for the Discovery Partners Institute’s (DPI) Call for Proposals: DPI-Fermilab Research Partnership on Computing and Data Technologies | The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois (uillinois.edu).
Please join your University of Illinois System colleagues in building DPI’s research and development portfolio by applying for a DPI-Fermilab Research Partnership on Computing and Data Technologies Seed Funding Grant. Participants must include members from the University of Illinois System as well as Fermi National Laboratory. Teams should conduct joint research on computing and data technologies (e.g., artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, machine learning, cybersecurity, pattern recognition, etc.). Our goal is to leverage the complementary research expertise and resources from both organizations to develop the next generation of computing and data technologies with inspiring impacts on science, the economy, and society.
Proposals should demonstrate the ability to advance fundamental knowledge in research on computing and data technologies with potential for industry application in one or more of the following sectors:
- Digital Government
- Finance and Insurance
- Food and Agriculture
- Health and Wellness
- Information Technology
- Water and Climate
The maximum requested amount of funding is $150,000 over 18 months. More details are available at https://dpi.uillinois.edu/dpi-fermilab-research-parntership-on-computing/
An informational webinar was held on February 1, 2023, from 4pm to 5pm CT. The recording can be found here: Call for Proposals: DPI-Fermilab Research Partnership on Computing and Data Technologies | The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois (uillinois.edu).
