Hi,

I'm proposing to expand the range and domain of sponsor, currently described as "Sponsor of the study." where 'study specifically refers to a MedicalStudy. In my proposal, the expanded comment defining the property is:
"A person or organization that supports a thing through a pledge, promise, or financial contribution. e.g. A sponsor of a Medical Study or a corporate sponsor of an event."

I propose that the domain be expanded from MedicalStudy to ALSO include: Person, Event, and Organization.

I propose that the range be expanded to include Person, adding to Organization, which is there now.

I've created some examples in Microdata, RDFa, and JSON-LD covering the following situations:

  • an Event sponsored by an Organization
  • a Person sponsored by an Organization
  • a Person sponsored by a Person
  • an Organization sponsored by an Organization

These examples are in the file "sdo-sponsor-examples.txt."

I can imagine there may be other uses for sponsor (CreativeWork instances -- such as an episode of a media program), but am putting this forth as a start.

Thanks,
--Eric

While working on a "sponsor" property, I discovered the existing
property, https://schema.org/sponsor. While it appears that it isn't
often used, my hope is that my proposed expanded domain/range and
definition will increase usage significantly without breaking existing
usages.
