In January 2014, ten international research funders from four countries jointly announced the winners of the third digging into data challenge.
Fourteen winning teams representing Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States received grants to investigate how computational techniques can be applied to 'big data', which will change the nature of humanities and social sciences research.
Each team represents collaborations among scholars, scientists, and information professionals from leading universities and libraries in Europe and North America.
