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 £3.5 million 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. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the call, ESRC will be contributing up to £1M to the call and the DET will be contributing up to £2.5M towards the call. 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).
The deadline for proposal submission is 16:00 on 11 December 2012.
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.
