Questions/discussion about GOSH 2022 Collaborative Development Program! (Phase 2)

Hi, everyone! :raising_hand_man:

Please comment here if you have questions about or want to discuss the just-announced GOSH 2022 Collaborative Development Program! (Phase 2)

To apply, please respond to the thread here .



Buenas buenas :slight_smile:

Our liquid handling project is behind schedule (about a month and a bit). I’d like to know what this means in the context of an application.

For example: can the project be considered for round 2? could we ask for an extension later on?

Thanks as always!

Hola @naikymen :raising_hand_man:t4: ¡Espero te encuentres bien!

As we mentioned in the post, all the projects of Phase 1 are eligible automatically. If a project is behind schedule, the team can explain what happened and the plan to overcome this situation. Applicants also have the opportunity to redefine the objectives and propose new ones that are more feasible for the next four months. Self-reflection will be relevant in this evaluation.

Good afternoon everyone!

As we explained in our application for Phase 2, we wanted to dedicate part of the grant budget to a field applicability study at Mboalab, just before AfricaOSH, to share our results with the community later during the event.

Recently, @biomakers_lab informed us by mail that the announcement of the winners will be delayed from August 26th to approximately September 16th.

Since the residency in Cameroon was planned for the 25th, and we need the confirmation to buy tickets, get visas and start vaccinations, we expect the delay to alter the plans significantly.

To alleviate this unforeseen eventuality, we have thought of the following; First, @gaudi and I are going to prepare some hardware materials and buy the tickets with our own funds because even if we did not receive the grant, we are still interested in performing a residency to test the hardware we have developed. Any person that wants to join us will be welcomed from our side, even if you will still need to check space availability with the Mboalab staff. Later on, if the project gets funded, we will contribute to the expenses of the trip as far as it’s possible within the grant framework.

When the grants arrives (If at the end we are one of the selected projects) we will use part of the received funds to make up for the advanced expenses, and the other part will be used to organize a later “application residency” and for the production of a larger batch of the developed hardware.

Thank you all very much, and sorry for the inconvenience!

Thanks @biomakers_lab!
