Seed-Corn Funding Opportunities

IDSAI Research Awards and Exeter-Turing Pilot Grants

The IDSAI issue calls twice annually for funding for seed-corn projects.  The awards provide fully-funded time of a postdoctoral researcher to support early-phase development of ideas for innovative, interdisciplinary data science and AI research.  For more information please select one of the buttons below.  The autumn 2020 call for applications has now closed.  The next call for proposals is expected in Spring 2021.

 

IDSAI Research Awards

The deadline for applications for autumn 2020 has now closed.

IDSAI Research Awards aim to support early-phase development of ideas for innovative, interdisciplinary data science and AI research across Exeter. Academic members of staff from all Colleges are invited to apply for the time of an IDSAI Research Fellow to work with them on a pilot research project.

It is expected that by the end of an IDSAI Research Award the recipients will have generated new pilot data to underpin future applications for funding or which will provide the foundations for research publication(s).

Exeter-Turing Pilot Research Grants

The deadline for expressions of interest for the autumn 2020 round of Exeter-Turing Pilot Research Grants has now closed.

The deadline for autumn 2020 applications has now closed.

Exeter-Turing Pilot Research Grants provide fully-funded time of a postdoctoral researcher to support early-phase development of ideas for innovative, interdisciplinary data science and AI research aligned to the mission of the Alan Turing Institute.

By building collaborations between academic researchers and Turing Fellows, these awards aim to broaden engagement with the Alan Turing Institute across campus. Exeter hosts 23 Turing Fellows but applications involving collaboration with Turing Fellows based outside of Exeter will also be considered.

It is expected that, by the end of an Exeter-Turing Pilot Research Grant, the recipients will have generated new pilot data or algorithms to underpin future applications for funding or which will provide the foundations for research publication(s).
