DOE Unveils Funding Opportunities for Data Science, Computing Research Projects
Department of Energy

The Department of Energy (DOE) intends to award a total of $34.5 million in funds to support research efforts on data science and computation-based approaches that could forecast harsh weather patterns, address scientific gaps and accelerate clean energy technology development.Β 

DOE said Friday it will provide up to $21 million across a three-year period to research projects that will explore the use of data science methods for chemical and material science matters such as chemical processes for energy storage.

The department also plans to award $13.5 million to projects that will focus on helping research facilities speed up scientific discovery through networking infrastructure and computer-based models.

DOE will obligate a cumulative sum of $11.5 million for the two funding opportunities within the current fiscal year.
