Use Open Data to build new businesses for the digital future.
The Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE) is a 6-month incubator for open data entrepreneurs across Europe. The programme provides up to €100 000 equity-free funding and expert advice from business mentors to European innovators to grow their open-data idea into a sustainable business. They accept project proposals from SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) working with open data from 1 May 2015 to 31 August 2016. New proposals will be assessed every two months by a panel of external reviewers and selected projects will run for up to six months.
SMEs are defined according to the EU Commission Recommendation 2003/361/EC and the SME user guide. The funding is intended for single entities, rather than consortia of multiple entities.
The next deadline for the submission of proposals is December 31st, 2015, at 23:59 CET.
