SPRITE+ is pleased to invite Members and Expert Fellows to apply to attend an online sandpit on Digital Vulnerabilities in July 2021. Up to £160k of SPRITE+ funding will be made available to fund interdisciplinary projects arising from this sandpit.
The theme of this Sandpit is “Future Digital Vulnerabilities”. This is one of our four Challenge Themes, identified by our Expert Fellows Community. In our sandpit we will co-create innovative interdisciplinary projects to explore aspects of digital vulnerability from technical, social, and socio-technical perspectives.
Some of the questions we might consider include (but are not limited to):

We welcome applications from scholars who have not previously worked on digital security as well as those with an established track record in TIPS topics.
The sandpit will be run entirely online (via Zoom) at the following dates and times in July 2021:
