Programme researchers are invited to apply for modest funding to assist impact arising from overarching issues of their research: funding is not available for ‘extensions’ of existing or recently-completed projects, in any guise.
Funding can only be granted in the form of expenses: please note that there are constraints that make it impossible to pay individuals fees for time spent; neither will estate costs or overheads be paid.
Activities could include, for example:
• events (workshops, seminars, exhibitions) or initiatives that attract media, policymaker or industry attention
• conference registration fees & travel expenses: please show how TEL (the programme and/or the field) will benefit i.e. beyond the dissemination of an individual project
• publication costs
• technical fees e.g. website enhancement as part of the TEL site.
• meetings to discuss collaborative proposals and applications.
Innovative, unusual or daring ideas are particularly welcome. A decision will be made at the discretion of the TEL Director based on whether an entry meets the above criteria. Successful applicants will be asked to submit a brief report (format and word length to be agreed) to TEL for their records and website. There is no upper or lower limit to requests, but it is anticipated that in the event of any requests being successful, the amount available will be negotiable.
Submission deadline: February 21st 2012, Responses by: March 6th 2012.
