European Project by default are not worth submitting to. If you can put the same effort in your proposal as in your code, your project could already be finished.

I even consider the "ODINE Incubator" as money laundry machine. Reasoning for declining a project is not about using open data, but about not meeting BS 10.000.000 revenue figures in the proposal. Hence your proposal is used as a way to suggest open data is "worth" something, leading to an economic bubble.
