Funding Opportunity Announcement: BD2K Open Educational Resources for Skills Development in Biomedical Big Data ScienceFriday, May 27th, 2016
The NIH Big Data to Knowledge initiative (BD2K) announces the release of a new RFA for training in biomedical big data science:
- RFA-HG-16-006: BD2K Open Educational Resources for Skills Development in Biomedical Big Data Science (R25)
The purpose of this RFA is to support the development of develop open educational resources (OERs) that adhere to FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) principles and that enable learners to gain the knowledge and skills needed to extract knowledge from biomedical Big Data.
This new RFA for T32 training programs complements the three RFAs released earlier this month:
- RFA-LM-16-002: BD2K Predoctoral Training in Biomedical Big Data Science (T32)
- RFA-ES-16-002: BD2K Mentored Career Development Award in Biomedical Big Data Science (K01)
- RFA-ES-16-003: BD2K Mentored Career Development Award in Biomedical Big Data Science for Intramural Investigators (K22)
These RFAs aim to train more researchers who will new Big Data technologies, methods, and tools. Training is expected across three major scientific areas: (1) computer science or informatics, (2) statistics and mathematics, and (3) biomedical science; in addition, the awardee/trainee acquire depth in areas of specialty necessary for developing new methods, technologies, or tools.
The receipt deadline for applications vary between late July and early August. Please see the FOAs for this and other details.
