The Data Science Institute (DSI) in collaboration with the Center for Effective Government (CEG) is pleased to announce a call for research proposals focused on the intersection of democracy, public policy, technology, and data science.
The goal of this program is to 1) encourage new collaborations between departments and units across the University of Chicago campus, 2) provide unique educational experiences for students, and 3) position our institution to be a world-renowned center of research on political participation and freedom of expression in the digital age. Projects supported by this call will be part of an ambitious three-year research initiative focused on freedom of expression and political participation in the digital age.
Potential applications are highly encouraged to attend a collaboration roundtable event on November 5th from 2-3pm to meet new collaborators and share their research ideas. This is a low stakes event and an opportunity to hear more about what projects we are likely to fund and meet potential collaborators. Researchers are encouraged to attend this event even if you do not have a fully formed idea for a research project. Register for this event here.
