Grant (deadline 20 days): Finding new ways in the time of a crisis

Swedish innovation agency Vinnova is funding projects with up to 100.000 EUR to tackle challenges arising from the Corona crisis.

An application must involve two parties - a challenge owner and a problem solver.

SenseStack AB, our Swedish corp, is just got funded and I think they might question our capacity as a newly started company to carry two projects. However, Blivande could apply.

Any ideas?

hi, when we talk about this we should also look at this opportunity sent to me by someone from the RSA network: https://www.rwjf.org/en/library/funding-opportunities/2020/global-ideas-for-us-solutions-cities-taking-action-to-address-health-equity-and-climate-change.html

@kajafarszky could you schedule a call with @zmorda and @OCILab and @marina about these two grant opportunities? also @hugi if you have time? Ideally before the end of this week if possible.

Note that this application comes with a an important constraint; both applying organizations, problem owner and problem solver, must be based in Sweden.

Blivande?

Yes, Blivande can be one of the orgs. Probably the problem solver, but there needs to be a Swedish problem owner.

let’s see whre the chat with Marco and Simona and healthcare epistemics thing lands. If that is a go, maybe we can talk to the AI chatbot guys to do something together? cc @alberto

Marco and Simona need boots on the ground, not tech.

AI chatbot guys are already applying themselves, so no need for us there.

ok looks like this is not a good match with where we can be useful. Moving on.
