The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub (NEBDIH) builds multi-sector partnerships to address high-priority societal challenges with data-driven solutions. NEBDIH is pleased to provide support for workshops organized by our community that are designed to plan and develop projects including (but not limited to) future Big Data Spoke submissions. Workshop organizing committees are eligible for NEBDIH matching funds of up to $10,000 per workshop and Microsoft Azure credits worth up to $25,000, per proposal. This program will allow teams to more fully conceive data-driven projects aligning with the NEBDIH mission, and improve teams’ chances of attracting funding to launch the projects by demonstrating existing community engagement and NEBDIH support.
The Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub’s 2018 Summit will include afternoon working sessions that will allow teams to self-organize on collaborative projects. However, this RFP is not restricted to participants from those breakouts.
A limited pool of funding is available and funding decisions will be made on a rolling basis. View the Call for Proposals and submission deadlines here.
