Resource Implementations for Data Intensive Research in the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (RIDIR)

Deadline Date: 02/28/2018

Agency: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Scope: As part of NSF's Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR), the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) seeks to develop user-friendly large-scale next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research in SBE areas of study. Successful proposals will, within the financial resources provided by the award, construct such databases and/or relevant analytic techniques and produce a finished product that will enable new types of data-intensive research. The databases or techniques should have significant impacts, either across multiple fields or within broad disciplinary areas, by enabling new types of data-intensive research in the SBE sciences. Funding: $4.5 million for 3-4 awards per year. Website:
