The Centre for Digital Built Britain is pleased to announce three new funding opportunities.

Academic-led Research Calls

CDBB invites proposals from eligible research teams, and early career researchers for research projects aligned with the CDBB mission 'to develop and demonstrate policy and practical insights that will enable the exploitation of new and emerging technologies, data and analytics to enhance the natural and built environment, thereby driving up commercial competitiveness and productivity, as well as citizen quality of life and well-being’.

Applications are now open for the following calls.

Delivering a Digital Built Britain General Research Call - deadline for submissions 23:59 hrs 8 September 2018

CDBB is searching for multiple projects covering different disciplines to support the breadth of the Centre’s mission. There will be opportunities for collaboration between the projects during the funding period. The call is for applications ranging from £50,000 to £250,000 (to include VAT if relevant) for a period of nine months. The funding period is from the 10th of October 2018 to the 10th of July 2019.

Delivering a Digital Built Britain Early Career Researchers Call - deadline for submissions 23.59 hrs 8 September 2018

CDBB is searching for multiple projects covering different disciplines to support the breadth of the Centre’s mission. There will be opportunities for collaboration between the projects during the funding period. The call is for applications ranging from £50,000 to £100,000 (to include VAT if relevant) for a period of nine months. The awarded researchers are required to invest at least the 50% of their working time in the development of the CDBB research project during the 9 months funding. The funding period is from the 10th of October 2018 to the 10th of July 2019.

CDBB Research Agenda and Landscape Call for Tenders

CDBB also invites proposals to draft reports which describe the capabilities the UK will need to create, exploit and enjoy digital built Britain over the next several decades, the research agenda needed to deliver these capabilities and the landscape of research competence available today to act as a starting point. 

CDBB invites proposals to draft reports that answers to three key questions, for each the various topic areas that comprise the digitalised service and built infrastructure landscape of the future:

1. What new capabilities the UK will need (and when)

2. What research, development and demonstrations are necessary to build, deploy and disseminate such capabilities

3. Where there is, today, the basis for such development and demonstration

Each Tender will be competed separately. Deadline for submissions 23.59 hrs 9 September 2018.

Interim reports are due on the 12th of November 2018, and final reports on the 20th of December 2018. CDBB will integrate the results from these Tenders and from the work of the current Research Network to create a single report during the first quarter of 2019.  During that time, CDBB will invite comment and contribution as appropriate on emerging drafts either by email or by participation at workshops and seminars.
