Anyone willing to develop activities related to open biomedical research during Tropixel? Mozilla Science have an open call for minigrants, here:

Awards at Mozilla are designed to support diverse approaches to addressing the most pressing threats to Internet health. Through the Science Mini Grants awards track, Mozilla seeks to identify, support, and develop a community of leaders in the network with the aim to transform research and the culture around science to make it more accessible, transparent, and reproducible.
Thanks to the generous support of the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, once again we are awarding small grants ($3,000 — $10,000 USD) for project ideas that foster innovation and ultimately lead to more robust prototypes and products by expanding and enhancing the community who are working open. For this round of mini grants, we are specifically looking for projects related to biomedical subject areas .
