This program aims to address how "big data" changes the research landscape for the humanities and social sciences and challenges the research community to help create the new research infrastructure for 21st-century scholarship.
In 2013, the CFI, along with NSERC and SSHRC, joined a team of ten agencies from four countries to support Round 3 of the Digging into Data Challenge. The 2013 winners of the Digging into Data Challenge were announced on February 15, 2014. Of the fourteen awards, one included funding for research infrastructure from the CFI.
More information about the Digging into Data Challenge is available on the U.S. National Endowments for the Humanities website.
