BD2K Support for Meetings of Data Science Related Organizations (U13)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support high quality and impactful conferences/scientific meetings that are convened by data science related organizations whose missions focus on biomedical data science. This FOA, which uses the NIH conference cooperative agreement program (U13), is part of the NIH-wide initiative, Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K). Data science related organizations have a critical role in advancing biomedical data science but often depend on meetings to carry out their work. This FOA will support high quality conferences or meetings that are relevant to the biomedical data science needs of the participating Institutes and Centers of the National Institutes of Health. For the purpose of this FOA, a conference is defined as a gathering, such as in the form of a symposium, seminar, scientific meeting, workshop, or any other organized and formal meeting where persons assemble to coordinate, exchange, and disseminate information, or to explore or clarify a defined subject, problem, or area of knowledge. Applicants representing data science related organizations may request support for one or a series of meetings over multiple years that address areas of data science aligned with the goals of the NIH BD2K program.
