Agenda item 1 - Finish up the Collaborative Development grant Application

  • Document is progressing and will follow much the same format as the application for regional funding.
  • There are two main tracks in this grant
    • Established project track - funding for established Open Science Hardware projects looking to advance their project to the next stage
    • New Project Track - This track provides funding for individuals and groups looking to build their first prototype or to significantly improve a prototype.
  • They are aiming to get this application out early in the new year!

Action items summarised by @briannaljohns:

  1. Pen will share the regional funding application on the forum (Already done!)

  2. Resolve comments & add remaining edits on the collaborative development doc and send it to the board as soon as you can (this action item is for the entire council).

  3. Laura will follow up with Nano and let him know that he can participate in the review process but will have to recuse himself during the review of his own application.

  4. Julian will review the policy index to determine whether it is something that can be moved to Gitlab or another open source platform.

  5. Pen will follow up with Thomas and schedule a meeting with him in the new year once things calm down a bit more

  6. Andy will post the meeting summary on the forum. (right now!)

  7. Reminder for councilfolk to introduce yourself on the forum if you have not done so already!
