The Digital Life Sciences Open Call has turned out to be a great success. With about 120 consultation requests during the lead time up to the application deadline, the Call was met by great interest across the Life Sciences community. The consultation requests resulted in 70 eligible proposals being submitted.
All submitted applications were first reviewed by the technical experts within the EOSC-Life consortium with regards to their technical impact, feasibility and project maturity, before continuing to scientific evaluation. The shortlist of 15 top-ranked proposals were presented to the selection panel. This selection panel, consisting of both internal and external experts, had the difficult task to select the 8 final projects, which have now been awarded funding.
We would like to thank all applicants for their interest in this Open Call and welcome all successful project teams to the EOSC-Life project! In the next few weeks, project work will kick-off and we look forward to reporting back on the achievement of small and large project milestones.
The following projects were selected (with lead applicant and lead applicant’s institution in parentheses):
More details about each of the projects will be published soon!
