Call for Southampton Turing-sponsored Pilot Projects | Deadline 14 June 2019

Published: 21 May 2019

This is an opportunity for academics to develop new research ideas aligned with the Turing priorities. The expectation is that successful, novel Pilot Projects will pave the way to substantial, inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional programmes at the Turing.


  • Pilot Projects will be for twelve months and should not exceed £100k.We are looking to fund 5-10 Projects.
  • PIs can apply for one Pilot Project only and may not be a Co-I on another.
  • Successful PIs will be automatically named Turing Fellows.
  • Turing Fellows are academics with a proven track record in scholarly research in fields that are in the remit of the Turing Institute and whose development would be significantly enhanced through stronger ties to the Turing network.
  • It is expected that all Turing Fellows will initiate and contribute to local Turing-related activities at Southampton, for example, by speaking at the quarterly Turing meetup, or by taking part in workshops, datathons, and other events, in order to strengthen the local Data Science community and its interdisciplinary fabric.
  • Applicants should apply through The Alan Turing Institute’s Flexigrant portal, but it is important to note that applicants should not submit their application to the Turing Institute until they have been notified that they have been shortlisted. Instead, applicants should download their application and send this to SusanDavies (ULM) by the internal deadline of Friday 14 June 2019.
  • Applicants are also asked to inform Susan Davies of their intention to apply for a Pilot Project as soon as possible.
  • It is important to note that Project proposals should be discussed with your Deputy Head of School before starting an application. Please also refer to the FAQs on the Turing-Southampton SharePoint site.

DEADLINE: 14 June 2019
