SPRITE+, the EPSRC-funded NetworkPlus for Trust, Identity, Privacy, and Security (TIPS) in the Digital Economy (grant reference EP/S035869/1), is a ‘one stop shop’ for engagement between academic and non-academic communities and a platform for building collaborations.
The scope of SPRITE+’s remit is broad and can be viewed through many disciplinary lenses. The Expert Fellows group includes many from academia and professional practice, with a track record of research and engagement with TIPS in the Digital Economy. New insights may also come from Expert Fellows who have not previously worked in this area but who may have expertise in related or pertinent topics or in methods that have not previously been applied to digital security challenges.
We are seeking new Fellows to join a diverse group of experts, each bringing deep expertise and creative thinking to SPRITE+ activities, and together providing a broad, challenging and informed range of viewpoints on TIPS in digital contexts.
We invite applications for Expert Fellows from individuals from:
Expert Fellows are champions for research engagement within their organisation and sector and, together with our Project Partners, play a key role in shaping the research agenda, programme of activities and helping to build the network. You can see the current list of Expert Fellows here.
