At the steering co. call today there was another item which Valerie and I wanted to raise but we forgot.
Valerie suggested to me last week that we think about applying for funding for resources to support CASRAI activity: “e.g. Modern Humanities Research Association offering funding for part time research assistants in English language. Maybe a good partnership in there as we have some real need to have clear language solutions in a number of areas.”
This also made me think of Wellcome Trust who offer fully funded placements for ECRs to work on non-academic projects, and they want them to be as tricky as possible.
Does anyone have any other ideas? Both of funding sources and of specific pieces of project work that we could have an intern or placement person work on?
