Description of call for proposal

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research announces SEK 200 million in a national call for proposals for problem- or application-driven research projects that meet the highest international scientific standards. The call aims to stimulate collaborative interdisciplinary research within the area of Big Data and Computational Science, of relevance to present or future Swedish-based industry and to society. The call addresses methods for dealing with enormous amounts of structured, semistructured, and unstructured data that may move too fast, or not fit the structures of stateof-the-art database architectures, but have the potential to be mined for information. The project must include fundamental mathematical and computational research components, associated with big data.
