People at the Heart of Software Engineering - Invitation for Proposals

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has up to £4 million available to fund between four to six programmes of research which will support novel proposals that put People at the Heart of Software Engineering research.

This call will support researchers who can advocate for the importance of Software Engineering and highlight the huge impact it has on our everyday lives. We want to encourage research into responsible software engineering that considers all stakeholders from the start of the research programme. This includes considering the needs of the users and developers of software as well as considering the potential impact software could have on people. This is in line with the People at the heart of ICT priority, one of the six cross-ICT priorities.
