This specific call closes April 10th.

We are a highly technical project that builds decentralized technologies
for scientific reproducibility and data governance -- think BitTorrent
and Git, but open source, and more secure. We have received two grants

consider joining our consortium. For a good consortium we need a
research partner, for example, that focuses on Internet and data ethics.

If you represent a group that would be interested, please email project
