Description

UKRI Centres for Doctoral Training to develop UK’s skills in Artificial Intelligence

A call for around 15 Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) focused on areas relevant to Artificial Intelligence (AI) across UKRI’s remit is now open.

Call type: Invitation for outlines

Closing date: 16:00 28 March 2018

This call opens against the background of Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti’s review, Growing the artificial intelligence industry in the UK, and the Government’s Industrial Strategy White Paper, Building a Britain fit for the Future.

UKRI expects that AI will transform every sector of industry over the coming years and we want to ensure the UK is best placed to benefit. Innovate UK is also involved in this activity; co-creation between different disciplines and engagement with industry and users are strongly encouraged.

The process is being delivered by EPSRC on behalf of UKRI partners and as such high quality outline proposals are welcomed from applicants working in areas across the remit of all seven Research Councils (AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, NERC, MRC and STFC) addressing UK training needs in the development, applications and implications of novel and existing artificial intelligence technologies.

How to apply: This call will be a two-stage submission. The application and assessment process has been integrated into the EPSRC CDT 2018 call but is a distinct strand.

Applications made against the AI strand must meet the conditions laid out in the EPSRC call . There is a single exception to this - proposals primarily addressing the ‘Applications and Implications of Artificial Intelligence’ priority will not be required to meet a minimum EPSRC remit. Please note that all applications must meet a minimum cash leverage requirement.

Outline proposals are required by 28 March 2018 with Outline panels taking place during the week beginning 14 May 2018.

The funding of the Centres will be subject to budget confirmation.
