The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, in collaboration with the Technology Strategy Board, the Connected Digital Economy Catapult and Microsoft Research, invites proposals for its next stage Digital Economy call. This aims to consolidate, harness and build upon existing knowledge and skills arising from Digital Economy theme-funded and related funded awards, in order to accelerate research outcomes and outputs and create more real impact. Actions may include:
•applied and translational research with clearly identified and engaged stakeholders;
•knowledge exchange and early-stage proof of concept activities;
•in the wild deployments and evaluation.
Proposals may be submitted by single organisations and may involve a number of organisations working in close collaboration, though other models are possible.
Expressions of interest due 13 August 2014; full invited proposals due 9 October 2014.
