No, funding for one’s living expenses cannot be included. All expenses should be directly related to the project outcomes and the proposal should highlight how._
Publishing fees are acceptable, as are any hardware requirements. You should aim to be specific about expenditure, eg. by mentioning which journal you are targeting or why the hardware is necessary.
If there are expenses that recur monthly, that should be indicated in your budget. You will however receive the funding in a lump sum and will be responsible for your granular expenditure.
Yes, you will have a mentor who will help us evaluate your project progress over the implementation duration and you can reach out to them should you encounter any challenges.
Yes, this is acceptable. It would however aid your proposal if this was not the only output. Datasets created and/or annotated, an analysis of the process of creating the model, and other digital assets would be even better.
One paper at a minimum, as the final deliverable of the project.
As funding received through academic institutions may take some time, what can be done for where a project requires the involvement of independent contractors who may need to be paid up front and cannot wait for the funding to be processed via the university?
We anticipate that everyone will receive the funding by the end of August, and will work to make this the case. Receipt of funding via an academic institution or a charity is the preferred route. If neither of these options is available to you, we are able to make concessions in some edge scenarios and instead send the grant award to the project lead, who would be contracted as a consultant and would be responsible for the project expenditure.
Yes, you can work on a project alone. However, having a team with varied skills and experiences, is encouraged. This helps build confidence in reviewers that the team can collaboratively deliver on the project and mitigates any instances where one person may be indisposed for part of the implementation duration.
Yes, you can.
