Announcing ‘emerging impacts of open data in developing countries’ call for proposals

This is a quick post to point to the call for proposals just issued over on the www.opendataresearch.org site for developing country led research into the emerging impacts of open data in developing countries by Web Foundation and the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

I’m rather excited that I’ll be working as research co-ordinator on the project over the next couple of years, helping bring together the research network, supporting the different case studies that the project funds, and trying to bring together some of the learning from across different cases.

So – if you know cases of open data in action, from government initiatives to grassroots projects, in developing countries, please do forward on details of the call, or let me know so I can drop them a line.

And expect to hear quite a bit more about the project here over the coming few years…
