Dear Sanna, Thomasin, et al.

Yes, the aspect of funding travel scholarships is crucial.
We are aware of that and have been discussing options of funding travel expenses through an (already running) EU project.
This might be possible. However, we haven't told them yet that we might be expecting visitors from as far as New Zealand or Brazil. ;-)
The next step will consist in establishing together with the project coordinator to what extent OpenGLAM expertise and an exchange with the international OpenGLAM community would be a benefit for the said EU project.

Dear Beat, all

What a wonderful idea to host an international OpenGLAM get-together, if I can get some funding I would love to come. (I will end working at Aalto University at the end of the summer, and after that the Finnish local OpenGLAM activities are happening only through Open Knowledge Finland and our funding for next year is not secured yet).

all the best,

Both conference are expected to take place in the first half of 2017.
