We are offering logistical support to help organise the activity and will make available up to £5,000 of funding per activity to cover associated costs (e.g., travel, materials, professional facilitation/online production costs, data access).
Proposed events and activities should:
Enable SPRITE+ Members, Expert Fellows, Project Partners and other stakeholders to explore specific issues relevant to the SPRITE+ remit
Explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy from multiple perspectives
Advance understanding of what is already known and identify opportunities to increase knowledge
Successful applicants will be responsible for leading the activity, including setting the scope and intellectual content, planning, and taking responsibility for delivery. However, SPRITE+ will work with successful applicants to help make the activity a success.
SPRITE+ will help to publicise activities and reach out to Members, Expert Fellows, Project Partners and other stakeholders as necessary. We will provide logistical support as needed (and within reason) to support the smooth running of the activity.
In addition, SPRITE+ will fund up to £5,000 of costs, which could include travel, room hire, materials, professional facilitation/online production costs, data access, and so on.
Please note that no contractual agreements will be issued, and no money will be transferred. Instead, SPRITE+ will make payments directly on the organiser's behalf.
Deadlines and timescales
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until we reach capacity, with all activities being complete by the end of 2021. We expect to fund no more than one or two events per month, depending on budget and on SPRITE+ administrative commitment required. Applicants will be advised of the outcome within 8 weeks of submission and activities can take place anytime thereafter in agreement with the SPRITE+ Network Manager.
How to apply
Please email completed application forms to Natalie Theodoulou (SPRITE+ Network Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
