[7.03] Open Data Day

While we already plan to celebrate Open Data Day this year as part of the upcoming Energy Data Hackdays, I’d like to share an announcement about the launch of the mini-grant scheme, which will provide small funds to support the organisation of open data-related events across the world on Saturday 7th March 2020.

Thanks to the generous support of this year’s mini-grant funders - Datopian, Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Hivos, the Latin American Open Data Initiative (ILDA), Mapbox, Open Contracting Partnership and the World Resources Institute - the Open Knowledge Foundation will be able to give out 60 mini-grants this year.

Applications for the mini-grant scheme must be submitted before midnight GMT on Sunday 9th February 2020 via filling in this form.

Learn more and find full details in our blogpost about the mini-grant scheme. And please spread the word using the hashtags #OpenDataDay #ODD2020 !
