Call for Proposals Open-Source Ecosystems and Networks (OCEAN) Awards Program

Hello, researchers, students and student groups, and open source experts! Please help us spread the word! 

The University of Vermont Open-Source Ecosystems and Networks (OCEAN) research team is excited to announce the launch of the Open-Source Ecosystems and Networks Research Awards program, The OCEAN awards program will provide financial support to a global network of researchers, students, and open source experts who are working to deepen understanding of how people, teams, and organizations thrive in technology-rich settings, especially in open-source projects and communities. Funding will be awarded for four types of proposals types: collaboration awards, pilot research project awards, computing resources awards, and micro-awards. 

“The mission of OCEAN is to study how open-source communities come together to solve complex problems,” says UVM Professor Laurent Hébert-Dufresne. “To do so, the OCEAN project itself must be open and supportive of outside ideas and solutions. These awards will therefore contribute to our research mission and also help us build new bridges between UVM and research groups and open-source communities around the globe." says UVM professor and OCEAN co-leader Laurent Hébert-Dufresne. 

Interested groups and individuals from all fields and professional stages are encouraged to apply Awardees will be welcomed into the OCEAN research community to collaborate with one another via a shared Slack workspace, quarterly virtual brainstorming meetings, and a shared Github repository.
