Seedcorn funding

The Centre is launching a seed corn funding competition to support the development of new research ideas relevant to digital trust in 2022/23.

We aim to fund around four projects that further our research and understanding of digital trust and society. These could be small research projects, scoping reviews and pilot studies, workshops, symposia, and research seminars/ presentations, or staff exchanges and other collaborative relationship development. The fund is open to proposals from across all disciplines. Projects should fit broadly within one or more of the six research clusters that make up the Centre and must be clearly relevant to digital trust.


Call for proposals opens: 19 September 2022

Deadline for submission: 5pm BST, 17 October 2022

Applicants notified: By the end of October 2022

Project start date: Anytime from 1 November 2022 but must be completed by 30 June 2022.
