Announcing the launch of the Open Data Day 2020 mini-grant scheme

I am happy to announce the launch of the mini-grant scheme for Open Data Day 2020.

This scheme 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. If you’re on Twitter, you could also share this thread with information on the scheme.

And please spread the word using the hashtags #OpenDataDay and #ODD2020.
