Indicative budget amount

£10,000 - to support the open coalition work

Description and overall rationale

Open space advocacy work - we want to make an impact in the wider open knowledge movement. This is a new area where we will be trialing various approaches to benchmark for the following year - in particular building an Open Coalition, and engaging with the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU (FKAGEU). As an aspiration we want to be seen as subject experts in the field of Open.

A key elements of this project will be dependent on the Project Coordinator - a job description for whom can be seen here.

Risks
  • These being pilot projects, they may not deliver the expected outcomes. The outcomes are significantly long term, and it may be difficult to assess their success within 2014-15.
