Question: If my proposal overlaps two or more of the four challenge areas, how do I chose? Can I select more than one?
The challenge areas have a natural overlap and we expect - and welcome - proposals falling in the overlaps.
However, the application form allows you to select only ONE of the four challenge areas. So how can you choose if you are not sure?
For instance, if you are proposing a digital service that involves a sensor network producing data stored and analysed in the cloud, which undepins a digital service in the health domain, you would be in all four areas.
How do you choose?
We advise that you look at where the challenge and innovation-related risk is in the study and compare that with the nature of the digital service that you are concerned with - and see whether there a dominant aspect of the project. If still in doubt, however, please contact us.
Please bear in mind that we do not allow double submissions for the same project in separate areas - it may trigger a disqualification.
