The EPSRC intends to establish a NetworkPlus to develop and build on industry-academic relationships in Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security (TIPS), bringing together relevant parts of the TIPS community and a variety of stakeholders, including the CyberInvest members and other users, to identify the key opportunities where industry-academic collaboration is needed, build collaborations and grow the area of research and innovation for the benefit of the UK.

Involvement from a broad range of disciplines relevant to TIPS is required to include those beyond the purely technical elements, such as psychology, politics, legal and ethical studies among others. Non-academic stakeholders, including CyberInvest partners, will be essential participants. The NetworkPlus could undertake a variety of activities including workshops, events, feasibility studies, secondments and horizon scanning. Applicants are encouraged to be innovative in their approach.

Opening date: 3rd September, 2018.

Closing date: 3rd December, 2018.

Funding available: £1.7million (at 80% fEC).

There will be a webinar on 18 October, 2018 at 14:30 which will feature a presentation from EPSRC contacts and an opportunity to ask any questions. Please note: registration for the webinar will close on 17 October 2018 at 17:00.
