Projects can be stand-alone projects or part of a sequential evolution of projects. For example, an Explore project may be a natural start to investigate into a new field or topic, which can lead to the creation of a larger research project.
DIREC is launching two special calls for Explore project proposals:
- DIREC Climate Explore projects supports researchers wanting to explore how digital technology can help address some of the challenges related to climate changes. We are especially looking for ideas where digital technology has a centre role in the potential solution or where the research might make a significant impact
- DIREC Starter Explore projects are targeted at researchers in the beginning of their carrier (up to 7 years after defending their PhD) and who have an idea for an excellent project within one or more of the workstreams of DIREC.
Each Explore project may be supported with up to DKK 300-500.000 including overhead for a period of up to a year.
We expect to start up to 10 explore projects during this round.
Deadline for applying is November 5th, 2021.
Looking forward to seeing your proposals.
