The call for applications to the 2018 Ebbe Nielsen Challenge will be open on 9 May 2018. The challenge seeks to encourage innovative uses of and applications for the open biodiversity research infrastructure supported by GBIF. These creative applications of GBIF-mediated data can come in a wide variety of forms and formats—for example, new analytical research, richer policy-relevant visualizations, web and mobile applications, improvements to processes around data digitization, quality and access, or something else entirely.
The submission should include implemented products like websites, stand-alone or mobile applications, or outputs of analyses—to procedural improvements, including but not limited to data analysis or visualization, data workflows, uploading, or annotations.
The 2018 Challenge will award €34,000. The deadline for submissions is 5 September 2018. Entries will be done directly by applicants on the challenge submission page, to be open shortly.
