Cross-Disciplinarity and Co-Creation in ICT Research Call - Information Event

EPSRC's Information Communication Technology (ICT) Theme will shortly be launching a call for proposals entitled 'Cross-Disciplinarity and Co-Creation in ICT Research' and will be holding an information event for prospective applicants on 04 May 2017 at the Amba Hotel Charing Cross, London.

This call seeks to encourage active collaboration between researchers working in different disciplines and/or with users of research. The ICT landscape has rich opportunities for closer working between disciplines and many of the most exciting opportunities emerge at the interface between established areas. Cross-disciplinary research includes novel collaboration within the ICT community, with researchers across the EPSRC portfolio and with researchers funded by other research councils. It also includes collaboration with users of research. Co-creation is the joint creation of a research project by collaborators. For more information please see the call document (PDF).

The information day will explain the context of the call and the assessment criteria that will be used. There will be opportunities to hear about examples of good practice in cross-disciplinary research and to ask questions.

Outline proposals are invited from 03 May to 14 June 2017. Following an outline panel on 31 July and 01 August 2017, selected applications will be invited to submit full proposals by 27 September 2017.

We encourage potential applicants to attend this meeting or send a suitable representative from their institution. If you wish to attend please register your interest by email to EPSRC Events by 2 May 2017. Please note that, in the event of high demand for places, EPSRC will limit the number of attendees per institution. Attendance at this information day is not a pre-requisite to applying to the call and a report from the day (including frequently asked questions) will be published on the EPSRC website as soon as possible following the event.
