The first stage of the Strategic Research Council’s (SRC) call for the 2022 programmes closed on 12 January. The two programmes attracted a total of 74 letters of intent. The letters of intent were submitted as follows:
- 50 letters of intent to SRC programme Children and young people – healthy, thriving and capable makers of the future (YOUNG)
- 24 letters of intent to SRC programme Security and Trust in the Age of Algorithms (SHIELD)
Next, review panels will assess the letters of intent for their scientific quality, societal relevance and impact. They will also consider how well the letters of intent match the programmes. The SRC will decide the projects that will go through to the second call stage in mid-March (tentative schedule).
