Dear GPSDD partners,


The Open Knowledge Foundation is happy to announce the launch of the mini-grant scheme for Open Data Day 2020.

This scheme will provide small funds to support the organisation of open data-related events across the world on Saturday 7th March 2020.


To be awarded a mini-grant, events must fit into one of the four Open Data Day tracks: 


1) Environmental data 

2) Tracking public money flows 

3) Open mapping 

4) Data for equal development

Thanks to the generous support of this year’s mini-grant funders – Datopian, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Hivos, the Latin American Open Data Initiative (ILDA), Mapbox, Open Contracting Partnership and the World Resources Institute – we will be looking to give out 60 mini-grants this year.

Applications for the mini-grant scheme must be submitted before midnight GMT on Sunday 9th February 2020 via filling in this form.


I hope that some of your organisations or those in your networks will be keen on applying for a mini-grant this year to support Open Data Day-related events all across the world.


I would appreciate any and all help with spreading the word about this opportunity.


Many thanks

Stephen Abbott Pugh
