FAPESP Research Program on eScience and Data Science

FAPESP Research Program on eScience and Data Science

Versão em português


The FAPESP Research Program on eScience and Data Science has the goal to integrate computational modeling and research and data infrastructure in several areas of knowledge.

The program aims to establish and integrate research groups involved in the investigations of algorithms, computational modeling and data infrastructure with groups of scientists involved in areas ranging from biology to social sciences.

The program aims to support relevant projects involving mathematical models, digital repositories and data management, new hardware, software, protocols, tools and services, geared to meet the demands of research in the areas of agricultural sciences; arts, humanities and social sciences; engineering and physics, climate and earth sciences, and practice and education in eScience.
