Propose a theme

If you'd like to shine a light on a specific area of interest in data science and health equity, and want to tap into the DSxHE community to augment your work and the work of others, then setting up a DSxHE Theme might be just the thing for you.

What it means to lead a Theme is up to you; all we ask is to plan for an initial year of activities, with a minimum of one activity a quarter. These can be as big or small as you want, as long as they align with DSxHE’s strategy. Don’t worry - the DSxHE team will help you plan, organise and promote these activities to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

Anyone can join you in leading the Theme, or also be part of your Theme team, and we particularly encourage proposals from multiple individuals. There can also be a core ‘Partner’, such as an institution that’s largely supporting the work, as well as Theme Advisors to provide strategic guidance.

Before submitting a proposal below, do check out our existing Themes, dormant themes, and Terms of Reference for Theme leads. Or if you've got any further questions about leading a Theme, then get in touch.

Use this to submit your proposal for a Theme. We’ll get in touch with you (usually within a few days) to have chat about your proposal and help build a plan of activities for the first year of the Theme.

Thank you for submitting a theme proposal!

We'll be in touch very shortly.
