There’s another opportunity for a grant for OpenMRS:
The World Bank’s Development Data Group (DECDG), in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), is interested in supporting innovative collaborations for data production, dissemination, and use. The collaborations should take place in low-income countries and lower-middle-income countries, and be directed towards sustainable development generally, and linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular.
This call has been issued to target improvements where needs are continuous or recurrent, and where innovations can be readily adapted to other regions and sectors. We are interested in projects that result in data or methods which allow data to be produced faster; in a more cost effective manner; at a higher resolution or granularity; or address data gaps. Our ultimate goal is to encourage collaboration, experimentation, learning and capacity development in the field of sustainable development data.
What are the 2018 themes?
Scaling local data for impact: We are looking for innovations, which have an established proof of concept, and will provide more detailed, disaggregated, in-depth information to benefit local decision-making that can be replicated in other regions of the same country, or in a similar setting in a different country.
Fostering synergies between the communities of non-official data and official statistics: We are looking for collaborations which take advantage of the relative strengths and responsibilities of official (i.e., governmental) and non-official (e.g., private sector, civil society, social enterprises and academia) actors in the data ecosystem, and which can build lasting links between them. "
Funding available for each project: $25,000 to $250,000
Deadline for submission: 15 August 2018
If you have any ideas for project for OpenMRS that would fit this request - post it down below and we can start discussion about what would be the best way to approach this.
I can help with all documentation and organizational stuff, but this proposal needs a technical person with specific vision, who could write down all the details and could create a budget out of it. If you are interested in helping with creating this proposal, please speak up. In the post below, I’ll put the Google document with all the required information that we have to fill, so you can see what we have to prepare.
