Announcing 9 Awards for Open Science – Read, Write, Participate – Medium

At Mozilla, one of our core principles is openness. This inspires us to create open-source products and projects ourselves — but also to support like-minded thinkers outside our organization who share our mindset.

Today, we’re announcing our nine latest Open Science Mini-Grants: funding for researchers who are making science more accessible, transparent, and reproducible. We believe that when more people have access to manuscripts, data, code, and other research materials, innovation and progress become the status quo.

The nine winning projects are novel: They make gene editing technology more accessible, they teach open research best practices, they empower browser-based biomedical research, and more. Winners span five countries, but are united by the themes of biomedicine and, in many cases, artificial intelligence.

Awards range from $3,000 to $10,000 USD. These winners were among those who responded to Mozilla’s February 2019 Call for Proposals.
