What is this topic for ?
This topic is for announcing, exploring and discussing new funding opportunities.
Please be courteous.
Funding is of high priority for most of the researchers and collaborators on this platform, and can be a sensitive topic. Funding opportunities are often quite competitive and may lead to conflicts of interest, biases and inequalities, etc. We would like to avoid all of that, so we would like to suggest some acceptable norms of behaviour. If you would like to discuss these , please feel free to start a topic on that
I want to circulate a call for proposals
By all means, post it on here, but please tag the topic Funding Call: and be sure to describe the target audience.
I am looking to create a partnership or consortium in order to respond to a call
Depending on the environment in which you work, there may be better ways to look at forming a consortium. First try to create a core group of contacts in order to bring a minimum critical mass to the forum. This will help to clarify (your) ideas around the potential project
Speaking of ideas...
I have a great idea, but don't know how to get it funded.
The first step to starting a project is to discuss ideas. We don't have an "ideas" category yet, so you can post your project ideas here. Try to tag these topics with "Fund This : great idea".
Be careful - this forum does not (yet) make any claims to the ownership or liability of the content posted in it (we will address this in the Terms of Service). It's probably going to be CC-NC-BY
Private groups and categories can be made
If you would prefer to discuss your projects on this forum in private, we'd like to give you the privacy and support to do this. Although the project members are using Slack, and we can invite you there to discuss in real time, we can easily create private categories for selected members. We can (and want to) delegate this to anyone who wants to maintain it.
