Lorentz-eScience Competition

Every year the eScience Center and the Lorentz Center invite researchers to join the Lorentz-eScience competition. This competition aims to host a leading-edge workshop on digitally enhanced research (efficient utilization of data, software and e-infrastructure). The workshop should bring together researchers from the academic community and the public/private sector.

The winner will organize a workshop at the Lorentz Center@Snellius in Leiden, the Netherlands.

What we offer
• a 5-day workshop for up to 25 people in the second half of 2021
• travel and accommodation reimbursements
• no registration fees or other organizational costs
• a professional support organization, under the philosophy ‘you do the research, we do the rest’
