JISC Grant Funding 16/10: Rapid Digitisation
JISC invites institutions to submit funding proposals for projects to be funded as part of its e-content programme for 2011. Funding of up to £400,000 is available for rapid digitisation. It is anticipated that 5-7 projects will be funded and the maximum funding available for any one project is £100,000.

JISC is hosting an event to give delegates more information about the call, and also give the opportunity for networking to take place.
