We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Concept Grants program is now open for applications. Now in its second year—learn more about the inaugural winners here—the Concept Grants program funds innovative software ideas that support social science researchers to work with big data and new technology. We have a small number of grants available, up to a maximum value of $35k (or £25k). Deadline for applications is 15th February 2019.
Nowadays, issues related to the diffusion of fake news, rumours, hoaxes, as well as the diffusion of malware and viruses in online social networks have become so important as to transcend the virtual ecosystem and interfere with our businesses and societies. Currently, we are unable to effectively deal with these issues.
We are delighted to announce the first three winners of our Concept Grants program.
Each has been awarded $35k to develop their ideas and help more social scientists to work with big data.
