First National Calls for Projects

call for data science project

The Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC) is becoming a National Research Infrastructure with a mandate to support the access and development of data science and artificial intelligence (AI) in research, the industry and the public sector in Switzerland. This means that, as of 2025, the SDSC will provide expertise and services towards the design and implementation of ambitious data science projects, including support for the development of research data infrastructures and data science platforms.

In this context, we are launching our first National Calls for collaborative projects set to begin in 2025. The call procedure enables the SDSC to identify and engage in impactful projects and collaborations, and is a vital instrument to allocate our resources in a fair manner. The calls for collaborative projects are announced on a national level and focus on the following areas:

  • The 2024 Call for Collaborative Research Data Science Projects will offer to contribute in-kind expertise in statistical data science, machine learning and AI to research projects in different application domains.
  • The 2024 Call for End-User Innovation Projects aims to ensure that novelty developed in an academic or research context achieves its full potential in end-user contexts, serving a community or society at large, e.g. public institutions, industrial and/or economic stakeholders.
  • The 2024 Call for Collaborative Open Research Data (ORD) Infrastructure Projects aims to advance the Swiss National ORD Strategy by fostering collaborative development of sustainable and reusable data and software infrastructure that empowers open research practices.
