Funding opportunities for innovative metadata projects

The Helmholtz Association furthers information & data science in all research fields of the Association. The Helmholtz Incubator serves as a key hub to foster these initiatives. To this end, several technology platforms have been developed; they conduct research and provide services for the whole Association.

HMC is a cornerstone in the exploitation of Helmholtz’ data treasures. One essential component of HMC is the funding of projects that initiate and underpin the growing metadata network within the Helmholtz Association. These project calls initiate new developments, advance the HMC network, enable new cross-discipline collaborations, and increase the visibility of HMC activities.

The objective of this first Call for HMC Projects is to initiate and facilitate activities that address practical challenges in the field of metadata generation and data enrichment. The call aims at funding promising collaborative projects with the potential to being integrated into the wider HMC framework at the end of the project’s lifetime. The detailed goals of the call are given in the call text below.
