Applications for this event closed on Friday 25 November, but if you would like to be kept informed of similar events, please sign up to the Digital Scholarship mailing list.

This event, co-hosted by Informatics and the Digital Scholarship initiative, is designed to help researchers with complementary interests to find each other efficiently and identify whether a collaboration is feasible. Participants from all levels across Informatics and CAHSS are welcome, including students and those who do not necessarily have a project in mind but who would like to come and talk to like-minded others.

We’ll attempt to match each participant with one or more potential collaborators, and at the event you’ll be given time to speak together, as well as to other attendees. There will be follow-on resources available, including the chance to apply for seed funding for potential projects.


The Digital Scholarship Initiative within the College of Humanities and Social Science has a limited number of bursaries to allow members of staff and PhD students to develop their digital and computational skills by attending workshops, summer schools and other scholarly training events.

The University also has a subscription to, an online skills development service offering an extensive library of high quality video courses in digital, technology, creative and business skills. Please ensure you check for relevant training opportunities prior to submitting a bursary application, as you may find suitable alternatives are readily available online.

Please review the guidance notes below before completing your application:
