WDS-ITO Data Prize 2021 open for international submissions

1 November 2021

The World Data System International Technology Office (WDS-ITO) is awarding two cash prizes of CAD$1,000 for projects that make innovative use of WDS data in a Virtual Research Environment or Computational Notebook.

The World Data System is an interdisciplinary body of the International Science Council promoting universal and equitable access to quality-assured scientific data and associated services. DANS is member of WDS. With generous support from Canada’s New Digital Research Infrastructure Organization (NDRIO), the World Data System International Technology Office (WDS-ITO) is running the competition. Winners will be announced on the WDS website in spring 2022.

The purpose of the award is to incentivize and document innovative use, analysis, or visualization of WDS member data in Virtual Research Environments. The organisation would like to know more about how researchers, students, developers, and data scientists facilitate the pipeline of data between repositories and analytics engines, and they are inviting you to show your solutions.
