Digital Economy Investigator-led Research Projects

Funding of up to £5 million is available from the Digital Economy (DE) Theme to support around 10 awards for adventurous investigator-led research projects to explore any area of digital economy research.

Projects may be of any length but are envisioned to last typically 18-36 months. Proposals may align with the current DE Theme priority areas, or make a case for a unique research agenda.

We encourage applicants to be creative in their ways of working and the involvement of different groups of individuals and organisations. We encourage applicants to be adventurous and ambitious in creating their proposals, incorporating a balanced consideration of potential risks and outcomes.
