Gov Funding: Learning how crowdsourcing data could change the geospatial sector
UK Government are launching a funding competition (£50k-750k from a £1.5 million pot) for "Learning how crowdsourcing data could change the geospatial sector". Please see the links below for more detail. The eligibility criteria include strong UK ties (this is UK Gov funding after all!) and we would be delighted to see some OSM related projects winning - after all crowdsourcing is our expertise.
Happy to discuss further with anyone should you wish to chat. As a reminder OSM UK are a UK based businesses so would be eligible.
You can register for the 3rd December briefing event here https://ktn-uk.co.uk/events/geospatial-commission-crowdsourcing-competition-briefing
Info is also up on gov.uk here https://apply-for-innovation-funding.service.gov.uk/competition/268/overview
P.S. Weekly OSM pointed out that the total pot (£1.5m) is approximately the same as OSM’s total running costs for its entire 14 year existence! Another reminder of the value of OSM's mapping community :-)
