SPRITE+ has launched a series of short virtual events for Members and Expert Fellows to highlight potential funding opportunities for research and knowledge transfer in digital security, privacy, identity and trust. The third in this series will be with the team leading the ESRC Digital Security by Design Social Science Hub+ (Discribe).
The Discribe Hub+ is an ESRC-funded initiative that forms part of the wider Digital Security by Design (DSbD) Programme (http://dsbd.tech). The core mission of the Discribe Hub+ is to support the wider DSbD challenge by applying social, behavioural and economic science to core questions around the adoption of new secure technologies, the readiness of different sectors (and roles) to adopt new secure hardware, the regulatory and policy environment and how that might influence the adoption of DSbD technologies, and what social and cultural factors might influence the success of the wider DSbD ecosystem. We also support an extensive research programme using methodologies from arts and humanities to explore the future implications of new secure digital technologies.
We invite you to join us to learn about our latest funding call to address substantive research questions around the adoption of new technologies – in particular the role of security in decision making, the impact of regulation and standards, potential markets for DSbD technologies (and influencers within those markets), and software developers understanding of novel security technologies. We have £800,000 to award in this round, and expect to fund at least 4-5 projects of at least 12 months duration.
Please direct any questions to email@example.com.
Call for Events is now open! We're supporting Members and Expert Fellows to lead activities that explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy. We will help to organise the activity with up to £5,000 to cover the associated costs.
