The deadline for submitting proposals is midnight, October 1st, 2020.
The September 2020 ISC Call for Proposals is now open. As always, the R Consortium’s Infrastructure Steering Committee (ISC) is interested in progressive, pioneering projects that will benefit and serve the R community and ecosystem at large. The ISC’s goal is to foster innovation and help bring your ideas into tangible realities.
There is no set theme for this round of proposals, though the ISC is particularly interested in projects that are likely to impact the R community broadly and have a focused scope. If you are currently working on a larger project, breaking it up into smaller, more manageable chunks is recommended.
The ISC encourages potential applicants to “Think Big” but create reasonable milestones. The ISC is unlikely to fund proposals with a lack of structure, or a request for a large initial cash sum. Instead, preference is placed on grant proposals with meaningful milestones and conservative initial grants.
Applicants are advised to be as detailed and thorough as possible in order to increase the likelihood of receiving funding. Teams with detailed plans and commendable track records are most likely to be considered. Please include measurable objectives, immediate milestones, a team roster, and a detailed projection of how grant money would be allocated.
