The National Directorate for e-Social Science, based at the Oxford e-Research Centre, has been awarded a budget for a series of targeted activities designed to broaden practice and sustain innovation in Digital Social Research.
The Digital Social Research Community Activities Funding scheme aims to provide researchers with funds to support ideas exchanges, training in digital social research tools and methods, outreach events and partnerships. The following list describes each of the three types of funds:
Partnerships – joint activities, including the facilitation of Social Scientists studying e-Science projects.
Visitors – Supports exchanges, prioritising linking across investments and mobility of ‘Research Technologists’ for whom other programmes are unsuitable, building on past programmes.
Training and Events – materials and support including engagements with other relevant project such as National Centre for Research Methods and Digital Economy
