Call for Collaborative Proposals
In view of the current COVID-19 virus that we know is affecting everyone’s lives, Not-Equal is in the process of considering a new, later, deadline for submissions. Details of any changes will be confirmed soon, as will news of further networking activities to be carried out online. Please sign up to our mailing list to ensure you receive our latest communications, and/or keep an eye on our Twitter feed!
The Not-Equal 2020 Call for Collaborations is now open.
Applications will be due on April 30th 2020.
Projects can be up to 8 months in length and applicants can request up to £40,000 (80% FEC claimable).
What we are looking for…
We are seeking innovative cross disciplinary projects from UK Higher Education Institutions in partnership with one or more non-academic entities.
Projects should align with our Not-Equal Challenge Areas:
- Algorithmic Social Justice
- Digital Security for All
- Fairer Futures for Business and Workforces
And should also respond to our Second Call Key Topics:
- Enablement and Radical Trust
- Proactive Resilience and Reparation
- Accountability and Care
For further details please see our Call for Collaborations Guidance Brochure.
This year, Not-Equal have made some exciting changes to the application process based on feedback from network partners. The Call will not have an Expression of Interest (EoI) stage. Applicants will have the opportunity to post their ideas to the new Catalyst website prior to application, in order to find a project partner. Not-Equal will also host several events to assist finding partners, developing ideas and writing applications – see the next section for more details about these activities.
Following submission, applications will go through three rounds of shortlisting. Initially applications will be reviewed by a panel of academic experts, then by the Not-Equal Community Panel and the final funding decisions will be made by the Not-Equal academic team.
To learn more about the review criteria and application process please read Terms of Reference 2020.
