Strategic projects

The diiP institute will host and partly finance a small number of interdisciplinary Strategic Projects, of duration up to 12 months each, with the goal to contribute to both the analysis and implementation aspects.

Every year 2-4 interdisciplinary Strategic Projects of duration up to 12 months each will be supported (typical funding scale: €50,000). The financing will be in the form of human power: an institute’s research associate will dedicate a number of their person months to each one of the selected Strategic Projects. The research associate will be a data science expert (with experience in some of: data management, data analytics, statistics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, visualization), and will contribute to both the analysis and implementation aspects of the projects. The projects should be interdisciplinary, and advance the state of the art in terms of novel designs/solutions/systems/results related to data science and data intelligence.

2022 call for proposals

The diiP institute will support interdisciplinary projects that advance the state of the art in terms of novel designs/solutions/systems/results related to data science and data intelligence. Thanks to additional financing, diiP will support projects related to fairness of AI algorithms and to detection/analysis of disinformation (a.k.a. fake news).

The diiP institute will assign 6, or 12 person-months (in both cases spread across an entire calendar year) of one of the diiP research associates to the project. The projects should take place between January-December of the following calendar year. 

The leader of the project (principal investigator) must be affiliated with one of the diiP partner institutions: Université de Paris, SciencesPo, Université Sorbonne Nord, and INED. Collaborations among partner institutions and synergies with other interdisciplinary IdEx institutes at the Université de Paris are encouraged. 

Deadline for project proposals: September 30, 12 noon (Paris time).

Please follow the guidelines and instructions on how to apply.
