After the success of the recent SpACE-Net International Spatial Audio Workshop in January, and the networking opportunities it offered, we would like to open a call for proposals for collaborative projects.
SpACE-Net can offer financial help to enable you and your proposed collaborative partner(s) to undertake activity which will result in a full proposal to an external funder (e.g. EPSRC) by 31/08/2008.
Our limited funding could, for example, be used to a) undertake a pilot project to explore proof of principle or b) fund travel costs to allow prospective collaborators to meet in the preparation of a full proposal.
Proposals should be in line with the aims and objectives of SpACE-Net, and be workable within in the time-scale and budget proposed.
The deadline for proposals is 31st March 2008 and notification of acceptance will be made by the 15th April 2008. A member of the SpACE-Net Executive Board will be assigned to your project as a mentor. If there is sufficient demand from the authors of funded proposals we will host a day-long workshop to facilitate project planning, organisation and collaboration with a view to completing the final major funding applications. Additionally, if you have an idea, but are looking for specific collaborators or people with particular skills to help realise it, SpACE-Net resources can help you to find the right person or group of people to work with.
HOW TO APPLY:
Proposals should include the following:
