I've been looking through the list of past-awardees, and the scope is very broad. They range from a single-PI awards of $25K for one workshop to the largest proposal for a Virtual Biodiversity Center that has three PIs and has been renewed for $750K. I think we can tailor our goals and come up with a realistic proposal depending on who wants to be involved and what seems feasible in light of the deadline. I can talk to a program officer and let you know what I find out. More tomorrow.

    • nexml standards working group (compliance testing)
    • tdwg standards process
