Open Knowledge International – Frictionless Data Tool Fund 2019 (Up to $5,000 grant)

Open Knowledge International – Frictionless Data Tool Fund 2019 (Up to $5,000 grant)

Deadline: April 30, 2019

The Open Knowledge International – Frictionless Data Tool Fund 2019 is now open. Apply for a mini-grant to build an open source tool for reproducible research using Frictionless Data tooling, specs, and code base.

The Frictionless Data Tool Fund of Open Knowledge International is a mini-grant scheme offering grants of $5,000 to support individuals or organisations in developing an open source tool for reproducible science or research built using the Frictionless Data specifications and software.

The Tool Fund is part of the Frictionless Data for Reproducible Research project at Open Knowledge International. This project, funded by the Sloan Foundation, applies our work in Frictionless Data to data-driven research disciplines, in order to facilitate reproducible data workflows in research contexts. At its core, Frictionless Data is a set of specifications for data and metadata interoperability, accompanied by a collection of software libraries that implement these specifications, and a range of best practices for data management. The core specification, the Data Package, is a simple and practical “container” for data and metadata.

Benefits

  • Open Knowledge International is offering grants of $5,000 to support individuals or organisations in developing an open source tool for reproducible science or research built using the Frictionless Data specifications and software.

Eligibility

  • Open to any individuals or organizations in the world interested in developing an open source tool for reproducible science or research built using the Frictionless Data specifications and software
  • They are looking for individuals or organizations of scientists, researchers, developers, or data wranglers to build upon our existing open source tools and code base to create novel tooling for reproducible research.
  • The fund will be accepting submissions from now until the end of April 2019 for work which will be completed by the end of the year.
  • Preference will also be given to applicants who show an interest working with and maintaining these tools going forward.

Application

Applications can be submitted by filling out this form by 30 April 2019 latest.

The Frictionless Data team will notify all applicants whether they have been successful or not at the very latest by the end of May. Successful candidates will then be invited for interviews before the final decision is given. They will base their choice on evidence of technical capabilities and also favour applicants who demonstrate an interest in practical use of the Frictionless Data Specifications.
