JISC has just announced funding for its Grant call 7/10: e-Content and Digitisation programme: Impact and Embedding of digitised resources.
Funding of up to £150,000 is available for projects addressing the impact and embedding of digitised resources. It is anticipated that 4-6 projects will be funded and the maximum funding for any one project is £40,000.
Proposals are not limited to previously funded JISC projects.
The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12 noon on Friday 9 July 2010.
The call aims to:
- Facilitate institutions in carrying out an analysis of the impact of their digitised resources/collections that have been live for at least one calendar year.
- To develop strategies and practical solutions to ensure the increased use and impact of the resources in teaching, learning and research within higher education (HE)
This call is in response to a number of important studies and pieces of work attempting to asses the impact and usage of digital resources, including the impact study carried out on the phase I JISC digitisation projects.
Projects must start in October 2010 and complete by March 2011.
