Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative Essential Open Source Software for Science
In a new effort to support open source software for science, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) seeks applications for software projects that are essential to biomedical research, have already demonstrated impact, and can show potential for continued improvement. Grants will be for a one-year period.
Open source software is critical to modern scientific research, advancing biology and medicine while providing reproducibility and transparency. Hundreds of software packages, libraries, and applications have become essential tools for research—so much so that many researchers could not continue their work without them. Despite its importance, a majority of research software is undervalued and lacks funding for maintenance, growth, development, and community engagement. Also, those who work on such software often lack credit and recognition.
Deadline: Applications are due by August 4.
