Applications of Distributed Ledger Technology
The RCUK Digital Economy theme invite interdisciplinary applications in the area of distributed ledger technology to support exceptionally creative and interdisciplinary research projects that are genuinely co-created with users of the technology from the outset. This call aims to support feasibility studies where the technical and social elements of the technology are considered holistically.
Funding of £3 million is available to support around 5-10 creative, interdisciplinary feasibility studies lasting 18-24 months that will explore transformative use cases of distributed ledger technology. Applicants should apply for around £300,000 - £600,000 (Research Council Contribution) depending on the activities planned and number of partners involved in the project.
This call is being managed by EPSRC on behalf of the RCUK Digital Economy Theme, and the other Research Councils involved (AHRC and ESRC). We expect to see interdisciplinarity in all applications.
This call has an outline stage followed by an interview stage. At stage 1, an independent panel will select a small number of applications anonymously (without knowing the identities or institutions of applicants) which are taken forward to stage 2 of the process - an interview accompanied by a full proposal.
You may have applied to attend the call briefing and networking event associated with this activity on 02 June. Please note: you do not need to have attended this event in order to apply to this call. The outputs of this workshop are accessible to everyone, including those who could not attend, via the "Resources" section of this page.
