Subject: JISC Grant Funding 14/09: Managing Research Data Programme
***Apologies for Cross Posting***
Due to the recent funding announcement (see news section of the web site<http://www.jisc.ac.uk/news/stories/2010/01/funding.aspx>), the 14/09 Managing Research Data Programme Call (#jiscmrd) was previously frozen and is now released with some modifications.
The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) invites institutions to submit funding proposals for projects under two separate strands of the Managing Research Data Programme. JISC wishes to fund projects:
1. To demonstrate the innovative potential for research and scholarly communications of improving methods for citing, linking and integrating research data.
2. To explore innovative technical and organisational models for data publication by scoping and piloting enhanced publications for research data in the form of ‘data journals’, ‘overlay journals’, or similar.
Strand A: Citing, Linking and Integrating Research Data
Projects to demonstrate the innovative potential for research and scholarly communications of improving methods for citing, linking and integrating research data.
Total funds: up to £120,000 available per project and up to 10 projects will be funded. Projects will last up to 12 months’ duration.
Strand B: Innovative Publications for Research Data
Projects to explore innovative technical and organisational models for data publication by scoping and piloting enhanced publications for research data.
Total funds: up to £200,000 available per project and up to 4 projects will be funded. Projects will last up to 12 months’ duration.
Total funds for both strands: £1,000,000. JISC intends to allocate roughly £600,000 to Strand A and up to £400,000 to Strand B. However, should either strand attract an oversubscription of particularly strong bids, adjustments in the distribution of funding between strands may be made to reflect this.
The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12:00 noon UK time on Tuesday, 25 May 2010.
Funding is available for projects starting from 1 August 2010 for any duration up to 12 months. All projects must complete by 31 July 2011.
Proposals may be submitted by Higher Education (HE) Institutions funded by HEFCE or HEFCW. HE and FE institutions in Northern Ireland and Scotland and FE institutions in England and Wales are not eligible to bid but may be involved as partners in proposals led by HE institutions funded by HEFCE or HEFCW.
Proposals may be from single institutions or consortia. Partnership arrangements may be developed outside the sector (for example with research council sites, publishers, commercial suppliers), but the lead partner must meet the criteria outlined above. Funds can only be allocated through the lead partner.
