DOE Funding Data Science Projects for Chemistry, Materials Science Applications

The Department of Energy is investing $30M to fund research on data science applications in the chemistry and materials science areas. The effort, under the department's Basic Energy Sciences program, is seeking projects that apply data science to uncover mechanisms behind the chemical and material aspects of energy, DOE said Friday

DOE will award three-year grants to compliant entities that the department will decide on via peer review. The department invites industry, academia, nonprofits and national laboratories to submit pre-application proposals through March 8, with final applications due on May 15.
