Pilot Project Support
The Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala (CDHU) releases periodic calls for Pilot Project Support, an initiative that provides technical and methodological support, and computational space for research projects in the humanities and social sciences. It is connected to the digital research infrastructure mission of the CDHU.
Pilot Project Support is a recurring and periodical initiative open to researchers and staff in the humanities and social sciences at Uppsala University. The purpose and aim is to support the digital implementation of research projects in a general sense. Applications may concern new ideas or be spin-offs of existing projects. Project proposals that can demonstrate concrete outcomes or can demonstrate importance and reusability are especially welcome. Pilot projects aimed at larger external applications in the future are also welcome.
Pilot projects that are granted support will have access to: (1) technical support in terms of human resources (research engineer time) that can provide support with methods, tools, data processing and implementation; and (2) computational space in the digital research infrastructure for storing and processing data that is under construction at CDHU. Before implementation CDHU staff will also support and facilitate the prototype design of the project.
