We support research collaborations that span across traditional disciplinary boundaries, advancing data-focused research in new areas and applications. We achieve this by focusing on several grand challenges, providing seed funds for novel collaborations, and bringing together a pool of experts that represent a wide range of disciplines. In doing so, our emphasis is on both
> Creating a supportive environment for researchers using and developing computational and data-intensive practices
> Developing new tools and methodologies to solve complex problems across domains
For the academic year 2022-23, we are launching a preliminary version of our Convergent Research Themes program.
