Grant proposal: Exploring Hidden Costs of Open Infrastructure

  • 1. Invest in Open Infrastructure


Grant proposal submitted by Invest in Open Infrastructure to the Mellon Foundation in 2021-01. From the proposal summary: "...We request $135,125 USD for a 15-month initial exploration of the costs associated with ongoing maintenance, sustainability, and resourcing of the technology, tools, and systems that scholarship and research depend on. Funding will be dedicated in large part to bringing on a Research Data Analyst, whose work will be centered around building out a funding data prototype for the sector and further interrogating and analyzing the costs associated with running and maintaining key open infrastructures, building on initial findings from our Future of Open Scholarship research."
