How will competition between researchers be managed?
Each application will be considered on individual merit. To avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, where there is substantial overlap between separate proposals we may suggest that researchers collaborate on a project (after seeking appropriate permissions) or modify their proposal accordingly. The CKB will not insist on collaboration; if proposals meet the criteria for approval the same data may be shared with different institutions at the same time. A list of approved and completed projects will be made available on this website to ensure that knowledge of the resource and its usage is freely available.
