The Netherlands eScience Center and the Lorentz Center are looking for researchers who would like to participate in the Lorentz-eScience competition. The winner can organize a workshop at the Lorentz Center@Snellius, Leiden, the Netherlands.

The Lorentz-eScience competition aims to host a leading-edge workshop on digitally enhanced research (efficient utilization of data, software and e-infrastructure). The workshop topic should bring together researchers from the academic community and the public/private sector.

What we seek

  • an innovative scientific program, that takes us
    beyond current boundaries
  • an open and interactive format, with few lectures
  • at least one scientific organizer based within and
    one outside the Netherlands
  • at least one scientific organizer from academia
    and one from the public/private sector

What we offer

  • a 5-day workshop for up to 25 people in the first
    half of 2019
  • travel and accommodation reimbursements
  • no registration fees or other organizational costs
  • a professional support organization, under the
    philosophy ‘you do the research, we do the rest’

  • a full application by 6 June 2018
  • final decision end of June 2018
  • submit applications to:
