The RCUK Digital Economy Theme will be soon be issuing an invitation for proposals for cross-disciplinary packages of research and people-based activities, that will develop and strengthen the engagement between the research communities in digital economy, economics and management:
The RCUK Digital Economy Theme (DET) wants, through its investments, to engage more with business schools and economics researchers who have been under-represented in existing grants. This need was highlighted by the recent DE Impact Review. To encourage new participants to participate quickly with the community, RCUK would like to promote engagement between existing investments e.g. digital economy hubs, networks and new researchers.
Up to £2.5M has been earmarked for this call, which seeks to support cross disciplinary research as well as building links between groups and disciplines. This call is being commissioned in close partnership with ESRC. Subject to the quality of the submissions received, it is anticipated that we will fund up to five proposals. Grants funded under this call will provide funding to support a suite of related research and people-based activities, which should complement the work of the DET Network+ “New Economic Models in the Digital Economy” (NEMODE).
This call will be released on Je-S on 02 October 2012, when the call document will be updated with full submission details. The deadline for proposal submission is 16:00 on 11 December 2012. This call has been published in advance of release on Je-S to ensure that potential applicants have sufficient time to develop the linkages between digital economy, economics and management necessary for building a proposal for this call.
Anyone intending to submit a proposal to this call must register their interest by completing the Intent to Submit a Full Proposal Form on this page, by 12:00 on 19 November 2012.
