Announcement
In January 2016, the first ever CODAH Joint Bid Development Workshop is scheduled. CODAH ( Centre on Digital Arts and Humanities ) supports interdisciplinary work across Computer Science (CS) and the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences. This sandpit-style workshop aims to develop our interdisciplinary community and increase grant capture. The goal is to brainstorm, develop and start drafting cross-disciplinary bids for submission to funding agencies such as the EPSRC, AHRC, ESRC, Leverhulme, Innovate UK, and internal strategic funding such as SURGE, CHERISH etc. The scope is broad. Anyone interested in participating in joint bid development is welcome including the College of Science (CoS), College of Medicine, College of Engineering etc. The first day will be presentation and formation of partnerships with delegates shortly presenting their research interests. The second day will focus on planning, outlining, and drafting.

Call for Participation
Delegates are invited to present according to special prescribed guidelines in order to stimulate joint bid development projects between CS and RIAH or any other discipline. Each participate is invited to present a short talk following a prescribed template:

  1. their research interests,
  2. their current bid idea(s),
  3. the expertise they think is most suited (and saught after) for the project,
  4. the most likely target funding agency,
  5. any previous inter-disciplinary bid experience,
  6. if you are willing to serve as Principal Investigator
The CODAH web page lists a number of different interdisciplinary projects that could be developed. The second day will be outlining and drafting of bids.
