Seedcorn funding

The Centre runs a seedcorn funding competition each year to support the development of new research ideas relevant to digital trust.

Each year, 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, 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.


The 2023/24 call for applications has now closed.

The next call for proposals will open in October, and projects can run from November to the following July.

More information will be added here when the next call for proposals opens.
