ODI Showcase 2016 – spring call for entries
The ODI launches new call for ODI Showcase commissioned projects demonstrating the real-world impact of data innovation. Last year the ODI commissioned four diverse projects demonstrating how open data can be used to directly benefit individuals, organisations and society as part of its ODI Showcase series. This year we are happy to announce a new call for entries.
How the ODI can support your project
– Do you want to tell the story of your innovation success?
The ODI’s mission is to connect, equip and inspire people around the world to innovate with data.
We are awarding two projects with £7,000 grant funding, to help deliver and tell the stories of innovative uses of data that demonstrate longstanding value to others. We are particularly interested in projects using or producing open data within our core sector themes: finance, agriculture and nutrition, global development and open cities.
In addition to funding, we will provide support to help maximise projects’ impacts, with remote expert ODI mentoring on conducting research and communicating your story, a platform to tell your story through the ODI network and mainstream media channels and the opportunity to promote your work at ODI events, including at an ODI Friday lunchtime lecture.
Using storytelling to maximise the impact of your work An essential aspect of successful applications will be the ability to tell a story that has clear findings to report on and resonates with the public.
– Who will be interested in your story? Business leaders, citizens, government?
Deadline for applications is midnight (GMT), Wednesday 24 February 2016.
