Sustainability: Access and Re-use of Digital Outputs (AHRC)


Will the plans allow for access and re-use beyond the life of the grant? Does the project have a robust sustainability plan that has considered the ongoing costs of maintaining the output and that matches the claims made for the envisaged long-term value of the data for the research community? Do the plans have any implications for institutional support and if so how have these been addressed? Are any assurances provided with regard to sustainability realistic? Has the proposal factored in the relevant IP, copyright and ethical issues associated with making the digital output accessible?


Will the academic content need extending or updating? Has the proposal clearly explained how this will be done, by whom and at what cost? Have they demonstrated how any cost will be sustained after the period of funding?
