Call for Projects

James P J Hetherington12 November 2013

The Research Software Development team makes a termly call for free software development effort in line with UCL’s research priorities. The fifth such call has now opened. Proposals should be completed according to the submission guidance and emailed to rc-softdev@ucl.ac.uk. Key staff from submitting groups should be available in the weeks following shortlisting for discussions. Proposals will be reviewed by our academic governing bodies according to published selection criteria. The amount of effort allocated will be determined by these bodies in the light of the proposals, but will be around one to two person-months. Resubmission of proposals which have previously been submitted is welcomed.

In addition to this free call, research teams preparing grants involving software development should consider bringing in the team as collaborators through grant-funded software development effort, 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.

The timeline for the current call is:

12/11/2013 Call opens.
06/01/2014 Call closes
16/01/2014 Shortlisting
13/02/2014 Final selection
01/03/2014 Approximate project start
