Happy New Year All!

I have started pulling together a list of current or potential projects for 
which the working group could seek funding during 2015.

Your comments and suggested edits would be much appreciated! Particularly 
from a global perspective as I'm most familiar with European funding. The 
key items to note are:

   - An application has been submitted to fund a pilot of open science 
   community grants for the working group and local groups (approx £5000 per 
   - An application is being resubmitted to the previous funders of the 
   Panton Fellowships for support in 2015-16

The key thing we'll be trying to do this year is work as openly as 
possible, which means collaborative, open drafting processes and open 
publication of decisions and reports. We want to collaborate wherever 
possible so do please let us know if any of these ideas intersect with your 
own plans and comment on the document or here in the thread if you'd like 
to get involved.

Ideas will be migrated to the wiki for further work over the coming weeks.

Thanks very much all, I look forward to hearing from you!
