@notequaltech EPSRC Network+: Social Justice through the Digital Economy Micro and Pilot Projects: First Call for Expression of interests and Proposals Closing Date for Expression of Interest: 28 th February 2019 Closing Date for Full Application: 30 th April 2019 Background Digital technology has given rise to extensive socio-economic transformation and new and emerging technologies are set to further transform the service economy and public services. Careful design and deployment is needed for this transformation to benefit the many rather than the few. If harnessed to the wrong economic, political and social model, technological innovation has the potential to be detrimental to the most vulnerable; its careless application can amplify existing forms of injustice and create new forms of exclusion in socio-economic life, thus further exacerbate socio-economic inequality and social division. That the whole of society benefits from progress in the Digital Economy is national priority as those who are most vulnerable have the greatest need of opportunities for socio-economic participation. Not-Equal, Network+ on Social Justice through the Digital Economy funded by the EPSRC, focuses on how the design of new and emerging technologies and their application, can empower, emancipate and more equitably distribute opportunities for economic development to all citizens, consumers and employees. Not Equal brings together and resource partners from academia, industry, government and civil society to understand, explore and respond, together, to the potential of new and emerging technologies to make the UK socio-economic life fairer for all. The Network+ activities focus on three challenge areas: Algorithmic Social Justice, Digital Security for All, Fairer Futures for Businesses and Workforces , that will: (a) Create research opportunities to address fundamental technological innovation that can promote fairness, equality and economic opportunities for all through the Digital Economy. (b) Foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and Knowledge-Exchange between different expertise, and between academic and non-academic communities. (c) Enable cross-disciplinary collaborations and commissioning of original research promoting an ethics of reciprocation whose outputs respond to the Network+ identified broad challenge areas. Micro and Pilot Projects Funding call Not Equal is looking to fund a first round of micro and pilot research projects. Micro research projects can be up to 3 months in length. We expect to fund up to 8 micro projects of up to £5k (80%FEC) for this first funding call. Pilot research projects can be between 6-8 months in length. We expect to fund up to 12 pilot research projects of up to £40k (80%FEC) for this first funding call.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
