Hi Moritz,
Thanks for your support.
The involvement of OSGeo can take various forms from a short talk (from a
member of the association) regarding OSGeo activities (OSGeo-live,
GeoforAll, FOSS4G) to a joint-session in a full day event describing for
example the use and creation of free GIS software in developing countries.
The implication can vary from one year to another depending on everyone's
Kind Regards, Maë//e

>> Given the short time to have your official agreement (ideally today May

>> funding is renewed) ?*
>> If so, it would simply be necessary to mention a member of the
>> association (eg the president ;-)) as a non-academic partner.
>> Unfortunately, the call ends very soon so we would need a decision before
>> the GA.
>> It would be awesome if we could get feedback from some of the board
>> members before Wednesday 12th.
>> If you do not have time to respond quickly but are open to a more formal
>> collaboration, we could add a short sentence explaining that discussions on
>> this topic are ongoing ;-)
>> Thanks a lot and sorry for the late request,
>> Maë//e
