The basic idea: 30k€ over six months to develop an open source 
prototype

Condition is that you have your primary residence in Germany. 
Since we have some germans in our community this might be 
interesting.

It reminds me of the Google Summer of Code. You need to have a 
project idea. The topics are digital tools for citizens, data 
literacy, data security, software infrastructure.

If you or someone else has time, he should definitely prepare an application! For a start we need to convince them that the proposed project has an immense effect as in it "will make the world a better place". So projects that will have a huge user base like e.g. Ilya's generic Blas qualify for this. Has anyone better ideas?
