JISC Grant Funding 01/12: Digital Infrastructure Programme

JISC invites proposals for projects to help institutions and the HE Sector as a whole develop a digital infrastructure.

Funding totalling £2,280,000 is available to support projects in the following areas: . research data management . research tools, including research vocabularies relevant to specific disciplines . research information management . information and library infrastructure . access and identity management

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is *12:00 noon UK time on Friday 16 March 2012.*

The full call document can be found here; <

*Eligibility * Proposals may be submitted by HE institutions funded via HEFCE, SFC, HEFCW and DEL Northern Ireland, and by FE institutions funded via BIS, SFC, DFES Wales and DEL Northern Ireland. With regard to bids from Scottish institutions, SFC has applied a significant budget cut to JISC in 2011-12 AY. Following consultation with Scottish institutions, SFC has requested that the impact of this budget cut falls on the number of innovation projects JISC is able to fund at Scottish institutions, rather than to cut or increase charges for national services, such as JANET, JISC Collections and JISC Advance.

Whilst Scottish institutions therefore remain eligible to bid for project funding in response to this call, depending on the quality of the submissions, JISC may need to limit the number of projects awarded to Scottish institutions.

Proposals may be from single institutions or consortia unless indicated otherwise in the relevant call. 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.
