Discipline hopping in information and communication technologies
The EPSRC's Information and technologies (ICT) team would like to encourage researchers to pursue an immersive experience in other disciplines and user environments.
Discipline Hopping Awards will provide short-term support to allow researchers from core ICT fields to explore research collaboration in other disciplines and/or user fields. The aim of this is to foster new interactions, bringing a multidisciplinary and user-driven focus to research. Alternatively, non ICT specialists can apply for funds to bring a technological perspective to their home discipline.
The call is aimed at researchers who have a proven track record of research in their home discipline, providing funding to develop skills and collaborations with other disciplines and end users.
EPSRC may signpost specific research areas for discipline hopping from time to time.
