Sponsoring a D2K Learning Lab team is a great way to jump-start a collaborative data science research project!
Researchers at Rice University and in the Texas Medical Center are eligible to sponsor a D2K Learning Lab team.
There is no sponsorship fee for research teams, but we ask that researchers fully prepare their project for the D2K Learning Lab and commit to spending at least one hour a week mentoring the student team.
A preference will be shown to researchers who are already collaborating with a Rice data science faculty member that has agreed to co-mentor the team.
Rice data science faculty mentors are an integral part of of the D2K Learning Lab, providing guidance and support throughout the course of the project. Please contact us if you are interested in mentoring a team.
