Current opportunities from Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery
C2D3 invites suggestions for interdisciplinary workshops. The aim of the workshops are to promote interactions between researchers across Cambridge, and to identify key interdisciplinary challenges in big data research, that we will adopt and promote via the Interdisciplinary Research Centre networks.
Sources of funding for individuals and research projects
Information on funding can be found using a range of resources including:
Royal Society - In excess of 25 grants are available through the Royal Society. The Grants Schedule provides their funding scheme deadlines and anticipated decision dates. The Royal Society funds researchers at the postdoctoral level and above in the UK and overseas. Undergraduate, Masters and PhD students cannot apply for Royal Society funding.
