        Subject: Pelagios Commons Resource Grants

Dear all,

As a member of the Europeana R&D team and coordinator of the Linked Pasts
Special Interest Group (SIG), I would like to announce the following Call
For Proposals in application for Pelagios Commons Resource Grants.

Pelagios Commons invites proposals for short self-contained projects that
develop resources that assist in the process of semantically annotating
place references in online materials. Resources may be of any kind ­
including but not restricted to software, gazetteers and digitization of
relevant non­digital materials ­ as long as they are re­useable in
multiple contexts and made freely available. Submissions will be judged and
selected by the Pelagios Commons Committee on the basis of maximizing
benefit to the widest range of Pelagios stakeholders. £15,000 is available

For details of the grants and the procedure for submitting proposals, please
consult the full text of the Call

Note in particular:

- the deadline for proposals is 17th June 2016- development must be complete by 30 November 2016 at the latest
- the maximum amount for any one award is 5 000 pounds
- applicants must be registered with and participants in at least one Pelagios Commons SIG

If you have any questions, please get in touch, either through the email
address given in the particulars, or via Pelagios Commons (http://commons.pelagios.org/).
