We only ask that the research responds to our key objectives and addresses one or more of the programme’s overarching themes as outlined in the Guidance Notes.
We use the term non-academic stakeholders (NAS) to refer to non-academic parties/organisations who have a demonstrable stake in the UK’s AI ecosystem. This can include organisations from the public, private or third sectors. For example, you might seek to collaborate with a large multinational technology company developing AI, a community group concerned about the effects of AI on their learners, or even a creative entity whose work is subject to use as data by an AI system.
The main objective is that the project be genuinely co-produced and innovative with a clear contribution to responsible AI.
