Submissions are invited to a UCL internal call for proposals for research software development.
We will be providing a termly call for free software development effort in line with UCL’s research priorities, and the first such call is now open. Proposals will be reviewed by our academic governing bodies, which are staffed by leading UCL computational academics. Proposals should be submitted by 14th February, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org following this guidance. Each supported project will be provided with 50% FTE for three months from April to June 2013. Key staff from submitting groups should be available in the period 21 Feb-7 March for discussions. A similar call will be issued in April for effort in the third quarter.
In addition to this cost-free provision, research teams preparing grants involving software development should consider involving the team as collaborators, costing programming effort from our developers into the grant – we can provide fractional or full time effort as needed, throughout the project or at critical intervals. Please get in touch to discuss details of costs and processes, by emailing email@example.com.
