Purpose of the Grant Program

Bridging the gap between early adopters of open science and the many scientists who value, but don’t have time to invest in learning about open is key to moving from science to open science. The 2018 MSL mini grant program invites applicants to submit project ideas that foster innovation and ultimately lead to more robust prototypes and products by expanding and enhancing the community of scientists who are working open.  Supported projects will focus on one or more of the following:

  • Prototyping – Building tools or documentation collaboratively with others. This can be open source code, documentation, tools and technologies used in data-driven science, scientific software, discovery tools (e.g., ways of searching code, hosting services, etc.)
  • Community Building – These might include mentorship programs, workshops, meet-ups or other events that promote community engagement.
  • Curriculum – Materials might include text, visuals, and video for online or in-person training.

All projects should specifically reflect priorities that enhance our broader community efforts toward open innovation, efficiency in regards to practicing open science (lower barriers, ease of use & integration, etc), and reproducibility (transparent research methods & results).

Eligibility Criteria

  • Open to all individuals regardless of geographic location or institutional affiliation.
  • All materials must be open source, shared under a Creative Commons license of CC-0 or CC-BY or equivalent, when licensing is required.
  • Proposals must address one of three key areas: Prototyping, Community Building, or Curriculum. The brief application will require that they reflect an understanding of the work we are currently doing and articulate their own efforts within the needs of the broader community.
