Scientific impact

Our team of eScience engineers collaborates with researchers from a broad range of disciplines. In 2019, we kicked off public-private projects in the area of big data and health, and earth observation. Calls were also launched for the collaborative projects eTEC-BIG, ESI-far, CORTEX and the EU-funded projects ESiWACE/ESiWACE2.

Moreover, we achieved a number of milestones in our first Flagship project, eWaterCycle II, including an extension of the eWaterCycle platform to an online platform and a Lorentz Center workshop that brought together 29 leading scientists from 7 different countries.

In addition to key numbers, the following section includes three features on projects the eScience Center is currently involved in.

Accelerating the search for dark matter

As the national center of excellence for the development and application of research software, the eScience Center and its engineers are strongly committed to sharing the latest knowledge and professional insights in the field of eScience. Our engineers regularly take part in debates on current and future developments in research and digital science by organizing or attending conferences, but also by publishing in the public domain. Below are three recent blog posts by our engineers.
