Software Carpentry ICS proposal

The R consortium invites the community to submit ISC Proposals:

The goal of the Infrastructure Steering Committee (the ISC) is to support projects that broadly help the R community. This might be software development, developing new teaching materials, documenting best practices, standardising APIs or doing research. Currently, the ISC chiefly provides financial support for projects proposed by individuals or teams who have the skills to carry out the work, but we can also provide administrative support, promotion and some collaboration tools for groups who would like to study more ambitious projects.

The proposal was submitted on Friday 8 January.

Good news, we got the grant!
