The National Science Centre (NCN) and in cooperation with the CHIST-ERA European Coordinated Research on Long-term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies network have launched a call for international research projects in the area of open & re-usable research data & software.

Programme description

CHIST-ERA Call Open & Re-usable Research Data & Software (CHIST-ERA ORD Call) is open to funding proposals in three open science-related areas:

  1. Create, enrich or prepare ‘reference data sets’;
  2. ‘Editorialization’ of data: Reduce the distance between data producer and expected or even unexpected data re-user;
  3. Processes and tools to describe, share, reference, and archive software source code, with the goal to enhance reproducibility of research results.

Funding proposals may be submitted by international consortia composed of at least 3 research teams from at least 3 countries participating in the call. The principal investigator of the Polish research team must hold at least a PhD degree.

Countries participating in the call: Belgium, Brazil, the Czech Republic, France, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

The application procedure:

  • International level: a joint proposal drafted by the Polish research teams in cooperation with the foreign partners (in English) and submitted to the electronic submission system (ESS) of the CHIST-ERA network.
  • National level: an NCN proposal concerning the Polish part of the project drafted by the Polish research team and submitted to the NCN electronically via the OSF electronic submission system within 7 days of the date by which joint proposals must be submitted at the international level.
