'''Background'''<br>
 
'''Background'''<br>
Providing microgrants was a topic discussed extensively during the [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2018/05/29/f2f-board_meeting-2018/ 2018 face-to-face board meeting], where a plan was developed. You can read the [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/02/17/call-for-microgrants-committee/ initial call here].
+
The trial run of the OSMF microgrants program was overseen by the [[Microgrants/Committee|Microgrants committee]], whose composition was decided by the board. Initially, the program was set to fund 10 projects with a budget of up to 5000 Euros per project and for a maximum of 50.000 Euros. The policy framework can be read [[Microgrants/Policy_Framework|here]]. All the project proposals (funded or not) are visible on the [[osm:Microgrants/Microgrants_2020|OSM wiki]] and some of the 12 selected proposals were presented [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/07/01/osmf-microgrants-program-congratulations-to-selected-projects/ on the OSM blog]. You can read the [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/02/17/call-for-microgrants-committee/ initial call here].

About this page

  • Content: Highlighting updates related to the Foundation - mostly news from the volunteer Working Groups, the Board of Directors, the Local Chapters (in relation to OSMF), the Advisory Board members and the rest of Foundation bodies. In some cases, diary entries and posts from individuals are linked, if they are related to the work of their working group/committee/etc.
  • Details: For more details you are invited to read the minutes or reports of the Board and the Working Groups (links on each section).
  • Accuracy: These reports do not go through a formal acceptance process, like the public Board minutes are. This might change. Reports are made known to the Working Groups and committees first, before being sent to the membership.
  • Previous reports: here.

Adopted/Completed/Approved

Ongoing or discussed

Please note that the list below mostly does not include regular work by working groups and topics have been mentioned during board meetings.

Working Groups updates

Working Groups are the main way in which the Foundation supports OSM in specific areas. Working Groups' members are volunteers.

Like everything in OpenStreetMap, we are very open and always welcome new working group members and helpers. If you support the ideals of OpenStreetMap and open data and want to help, just email the group that interests you.

Committees, Special Committees and other Foundation bodies

Committees
Committees are defined in the Articles of Association 91-94, and not typically employed by the Board. OSMF currently has one such committee.

Committees, Special Committees and other Foundation bodies: Personnel committee | Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Special committees
Special committees are different from the committees above (defined in the Articles of Association 91-94) and cannot be considered to be a subgroup of them. See rules 6, 7 and 8 under section 9 of the Board rules of order.

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Other OSM Foundation bodies
The Microgrants committee, while having the word "committee" in its name, was not created as a committee defined in the Articles of Association 91-94, and thus is listed under "other Foundation bodies".

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Information on voting for the 2021 board election: Please note that new members who join from 2021-09-12 to 2021-12-11 (annual general meeting of OSMF) are not eligible to vote at the 2021 board election, according to our Articles of Association. They can attend the annual general meeting and public board meetings and participate in discussions on osmf-talk, the mailing list for osmf-members (archive). They will be eligible to vote at the 2022 board elections, once they renew their memberships, if needed. Thanks for understanding.
