Faculty Can Propose Data+ and Climate+ Summer Projects

Deadline: November 6, 2023

Duke faculty interested in running a 2024 Data+ project are invited to submit their proposals by November 6, 2023. The Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke is especially interested in proposals that involve a partner from outside the academy or a faculty member from a different discipline. We also encourage proposals that involve previously untested ideas or unanalyzed datasets, and we hope that the Data+ team can make a contribution with important proof-of-principle work that may lead to more substantial faculty work and/or connections in the future. We also welcome proposals that will lead to the undergraduates creating tools that might be used in the classroom or facilitate community engagement with data and data-driven questions. See more information on submitting a proposal.

We are continuing to include a special segment within Data+ called Climate+, for projects connecting data science to issues around climate change.

Duke’s Plus Programs will launch the season with an Information Fair on January 18, 2024, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Energy Hub of Gross Hall to showcase the 2024 lineup of summer projects for undergraduate and graduate students.

The Data+ program continues to welcome undergraduate and master’s students interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. It is suitable for students from all class years and majors. Students join small project teams, working alongside other teams in a communal environment. They learn how to marshal, analyze and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the modern world of data science. The projects come from an extremely diverse set of subject areas. Learn more about Data+.
