Synopsis of Program:

Transdisciplinary Research In Principles Of Data Science (TRIPODS) aims to bring together the statistics, mathematics, and theoretical computer science communities to develop the theoretical foundations of data science through integrated research and training activities. Phase I, described in this solicitation, will support the development of small collaborative Institutes. Phase II (to be described in an anticipated future solicitation, subject to availability of funds) will support a smaller number of larger institutes, selected from the Phase I institutes via a second competitive proposal process. All TRIPODS institutes must involve significant and integral participation by all three of the aforementioned communities.

This funding opportunity announcement is from the Illinois Tech Fund Searching Services Team (FSST).


Per Illinois Tech policy, all grant applications (federal and non-federal) must be reviewed, signed and submitted by the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs regardless of the amount of the request.
