This is awesome! I will not participate on this open call but wanted to inform you, that the formular link seems to be broken. At least it says that I do not have permissions.

Oh no! I thought I'd checked that.. The form should work now!

Indeed, it's workin' now :slight_smile:

A reminder that the open call for microgrants closes on the 30th September, 10 days from now - get your applications in!

Hello @yaxu, unfortunately I just forgot to send my application before the deadline. Will there be a second round for these microgrants later?

Hi @ganz,
Yes there will, as soon as the funding pot has built up again.


in the same boat, of course I realize this a week too late!

I was wondering if the next round should focus on funding things more on the development side rather than community projects like this one. The problem is paying for substantial development time tends to be a bit more expensive than funding e.g. a workshop venue.


I indeed gave up applying for this round because the only thing that it made sense to apply for was covering material costs (buying USB drives, stickers, etc) of a project that still needs considerable development to make use of the drives.

We've now emailed the proposers with the results, we were able to accept 10 proposals of the 14 submitted. Please let me know if you didn't get an email (after maybe checking your spam folder).

Thanks to everyone who submitted a proposal!
