BDFI are delighted to announce a series of funding opportunities, all designed to catalyse new interdisciplinary research and partnerships.
Collaborate and Innovate: seed-corn fund open
Deadline 28 May
Announcing our first seed-corn funding call! Do you have an early stage, interdisciplinary project that explores digital tech for inclusive, prosperous and sustainable societies? We’re keen to support new collaborations inside the University and with partners, and expect to fund around 10 proposals of £3,000 to £10,000 each. Find out more and apply now.
Research opportunity: Exploring interdisciplinary space
Deadline 28 May
We’re creating a completely ‘neutral’ and reconfigurable space to accelerate collaboration across disciplines and sectors. We’re looking for proposals from researchers/ research teams to help us build on the developing designs in the long term and explore: How can we create spaces that meet the needs and traditions of different disciplines? How can we ensure people of diverse backgrounds feel ‘comfortable’ and welcome in shared space? What existing evidence exists to inform the design and function of collaborative spaces? And how could we establish this space as a site of research and learning so we can continue to refine our practice? This project could be tackled through a range of disciplinary lenses, and may be of interest to those exploring a range of methods/ approaches. Find out more and apply now for up to £10k.
