Call for Proposals: Sustainable Society: Achieving Work-Life Balance in a Digitally Dependent World

The EPSRC are inviting Expressions of Interest to participate in a virtual workshop (a Creativity Greenhouse) on the topic of Sustainable Society. This will take place in two stages, 04 and 05 July, and 10-13 July. This is a ‘virtual’ remote collaborative workshop, which will take place using 3D collaborative software.

The Research Councils’ Digital Economy Theme invites expressions of interest from eligible individuals to attend a virtual workshop (a Creativity Greenhouse) on the challenge area of ‘Sustainable Society’. The aim of the workshop is to:

  • stimulate new thinking in promising areas of Digital Economy (DE) research
  • bring together researchers to create an integrated vision for future research, both those already working on DE, and others whose research could directly contribute
  • develop highly creative research ideas.

The Digital Economy Theme has allocated up to £1.5M to fund research arising from the workshop, to be taken up by genuinely novel and transformative approaches.

For more information on the virtual aspects of this workshop, please see the section entitled ‘A Virtual Workshop’ towards the end of the full call document.
