Over the next 3 years we will periodically issue calls for Pilot Projects in the ITaaU area. These will be projects of up to £50k
Over the next 3 years we will periodically issue calls for Secondment Projects in the ITaaU area between academic and industrial, commercial or governmental, research, application and customer focussed groups.
