The Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE) is calling open data-focused SMEs and startups run by European innovators to apply for grants of up to €100,000.

In addition to funding, successful applicants will have access to a wide-ranging support package as they grow their open data idea into a successful business. This includes peer-networking, technology and data sets, mentorship, and access to VC investors and the media, including coverage on ODINE’s Guardian partner zone.

Selected projects will run for up to six months, and new proposals will be assessed on a two-monthly cycle by a panel of external reviewers. Applications take the form of a written submission and will be assessed in three areas: idea, impact, and team and budget. Submissions are open from 1 May 2015 to 31 August 2016.

Meet the ODINE team – 19 and 20 May at the WWW Conference, Florence; 10 June, Berlin; November 2015, ODI Summit, London. Subscribe to ODINE’s newsletter by clicking at the bottom of the page.
