> Dear all,
> this week, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, together with the
> Wellcome Trust and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute launched the
> Open Science Prize:
> https://www.openscienceprize.org/ .
> It invites teams to propose or refine technical infrastructure (e.g.
> tools, services or platforms) that makes innovative use of open data
> or that advances open science more generally, though with a focus on
> biomedicine.
> The awards will be made in two phases - 6 at $80k each in Phase 1, and
> in Phase 2, $230k for the winning team among these 6.
> Teams must have at least one member each inside and outside the US,
> and team members can be individuals, groups or legal entities (e.g. a
> GLAM, a company or a city). The abstracts of the submissions will be
> public, and openness beyond that is strongly encouraged.
> Deadline for submissions to Phase 1 is February 29, 2016.
> For official announcements, see
> http://blog.wellcome.ac.uk/2015/10/20/the-open-science-prize-harnessing-the-innovative-power-of-open-data-and-content/
> or
> https://datascience.nih.gov/openscienceprize ,
> and for an initial blog post by one of the members of the expert panel
> for the prize, see
> http://aoasg.org.au/2015/10/22/why-the-open-science-prize-is-important/ .
> As I am involved in the organization of the prize as part of my work,
> I cannot be part of any submitting team, but I will be happy to answer
> any procedural questions you may have.
> Please feel free to forward this to communities that you think might
> be interested in coming up with an idea to submit.
> Thanks and cheers,
> Daniel
