Apply for Funding from the AHRC ICT Methods Network – Deadline 30 June 2007
The AHRC ICT Methods Network invites the arts and humanities Higher
Education community in the UK to submit proposals for Methods Network
activities. Activities may include workshops, seminars, focused workgroups,
postgraduate training events and publications.
The Methods Network is keen to support both single- and cross-disciplinary
proposals and those that encourage new collaborative frameworks between
technical specialists and arts and humanities researchers. The primary
emphasis is on the use and reuse of digital resources.
Proposals for hybrid activities such as workshop/seminar/workgroup
combinations are also welcomed, as are proposals for any other activity
which falls within the Methods Network remit to support and promote the uses
of advanced ICT methods in academic research.
Funding of up to £5000 is available for workshops and hybrid activities.
Workshops provide training in advanced ICT methods for community members
within academic institutions. They engage with issues such as: formal
methods in analysis of source data and the creation of technical models;
working with multiple technologies; and other matters of vital practical
interest to the community.
Funding of up to £2000 is available for seminars. These may concentrate on
highly-defined topics of interest and also problem areas within the
community or may have a more general focus.
For information on eligibility and how to apply for funding see the Methods
Network website (www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk).
Please be aware that all applicants are expected to submit fully-formed
proposals with full programme, budget and projected outcome details and with
particular emphasis on the research significance of the proposed activity.
Applications that fail to provide all required details will not be
considered for funding. For further information about submitting a proposal
contact Hazel Gardiner ([log in to unmask]).
