Open for Applications 

SAGE’s Concept Grants program has been developed as part of the SAGE Ocean initiative to fund innovative software ideas that support social science researchers to work with big data and new technologies. We have a small number of grants available, up to a maximum value of $35k (or £25k).  We are seeking innovative proposals for software solutions that will tackle some of the challenges currently facing social scientists and enable more researchers to engage with computational methods and big data research.

Through the Concept Grants program, we are looking to support early stage software ideas, particularly those that include a plan for sustainability and/or that have future commercial potential within the academic market. We will look favorably on ideas that have wide-scale applicability within the social sciences and that will help further SAGE Ocean’s mission to equip social scientists with the skills, tools, and resources to work with big data and new technology.
