The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) have recently announced £4m worth of funding for digital projects. This is a welcome development, particulary in the light of the fact that the AHRC has had no dedicated funding for ICT work since the cessation of its Resource Enhancement scheme.
It has two particular strands, and projects can range from £50k to £1m
- supporting the purchase and associated implementation costs of leading edge digital equipment, resources or facilities.
- development of AHRB/C funded digital research outputs to ensure that they remain at the cutting edge of technological developments, are compatible with requirements for long-term sustainability and/or to enhance the accessibility of these resources to a wider range of audiences and broaden their usage and impact.
The closing date for bids is the 5th November. Further details are available on the AHRC website
For those wishing to see a list of the projects funded under the AHRC’s Resource Enhancement Scheme, there is a list available amongst the larger list of UK digitisation projects.
