UCL Research Software Development makes a termly call for free software development effort in line with UCL’s research priorities. The third such call for has now opened. Proposals should be completed according to the submission guidance and emailed to rc-softdev@ucl.ac.uk. Supported projects will be provided with 50% FTE for three months in the quarter following the call. Key staff from submitting groups should be available in the weeks following submission for discussions. Proposals will be reviewed by our academic governing bodies according to published selection criteria. Resubmission of proposals which have previously been submitted is welcomed.

The timeline for the current call is:

19/04/2013 Call opens.
09/05/2013 Call closes
23/05/2013 Shortlisting
20/06/2013 Final selection

In addition to this termly 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.

We look forward to receiving your proposals, and to working with you to build and maintain great research software,
