SURF honors 7 proposals in the 3rd Call for Proposals for Digital Competence Centers
Institutions could submit both small-scale pilot proposals (up to a maximum of €10,000) and larger project proposals (up to a maximum of €150,000). Projects could only be submitted by consortia of collaborating DCCs.
More synergy between topics
In comparison to previous years, there was less diversity among the topics of the proposals, although there does appear to be more synergy. Many proposals are related to repositories and FAIR data points and especially their integration with other systems such as Current Reseach Information Systems (CRIS), search and deposit systems and (lightweight) data analysis facilities.
To further enhance synergy, the evaluation committee advised those consortia to collaborate and develop the relevant components jointly to the extent possible.
