Call for Proposals: OSL Research Incubator

At OSL, we know that traditional funding schemes do not always meet the current needs of researchers. In this regard, we have decided to create a new blue-sky science annual call that will foster and promote research that is not oriented toward immediate output nor driven toward creating a monetary return. The best example that illustrates why blue-sky science is important is found in the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, which was conceived as a project with no clear goal but established under the principles of free scientific inquiry. Likewise, scaled to our OSL community, we aim to provide a similar open space for exploration and experimentation within the boundaries of our institutional mission and actual capacities.
