  • By: KENET

The Computer Science and Information Systems (CS/IS) Research and Innovation Grants is intended to promote early stage CS/IS research and development in current and emerging research areas, as well as strengthen the CS/IS SIG. The Research and Innovation grants target early stage research, enabling researchers to undertake proof-of-concept work to support R&D ideas and concepts. It is envisioned that the Research and Innovation grants, which are ideally targeted at junior faculty, will position recipient researchers in good footing to further their research and expertise in these areas, and subsequently attract more research funding.

Through this round of funding, KENET hopes to not only support individual research teams, but to facilitate institutional collaboration and formation of communities of practice in the research areas of focus, leading to enhanced research capacity in member institutions.

CS/IS Research and Innovation Grant: Areas of Focus

The research area of focus for this round of funding is: Machine Learning-based Risk Prediction.


This call is open to computer science or information systems faculty (who are full-time) at any of the KENET member institutions. Applicants must be PhD holders, having received their PhD within the past 10 years, and must demonstrate active research interest.

Concept Note Submission.

Concept notes with all supporting documentation should be sent via email to by 14th July 2023, 5.00PM EAT.
