The NNLM PNR is happy to announce the Research & Data Engagement Award. The primary purpose of the Research & Data Engagement Award is to support projects and build partnerships that demonstrate engagement in research data services through the sharing of expertise and resources.
Eligible applicants must be from institutions that are members of the NNLM PNR; if you don’t have a membership, membership is free and open to institutions interested in improving equitable access to health information. To apply for membership, submit an online membership application. Encouraged to apply are applicants who have not previously received NNLM funding or have only received funding once before.
Some ideas of potential projects range from an interdisciplinary collaboration to implement clinical data management services to developing knowledge and skills of librarians, students, researchers, clinicians, or public health workforce about best practices for organizing, managing, visualizing, and sharing data. Up to two awards valued at up to $19,000 will be awarded this year for the funding period beginning May 1st, 2019 and ending April 30th, 2020.
