On behalf of the “Geo for All” initiative, it is my great pleasure to inform the launch of the new website for the University of Colarado Denver's FOSS4G Lab. Thanks to Dr. Rafael Moreno-Sanchez who has been leading this at University of Colarado, Denver, USA. It is also great to see the establishment of an international advisory board for the lab to review plans and activities and provide advice for the growth and future direction of the lab.

University of Colarado is the 18th University in the USA to establish Open Geospatial Lab http://www.geoforall.org/ in the last 2 years and joins a great family of other key research universities (University of Massachusetts ,Harvard University,University of California, University of North Carolina, University of Kansas, Arizona State University, Kent State University etc). We are looking forward to receiving more applications from other universities in USA to establish research labs and expand our research in Open Geospatial Science in the United States and globally.
PS: There is also good news on Open Education with the U.S. Open Government Partnership: National Action Plan that is released. Details athttp://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/microsites/ostp/new_nap_commitments_report_092314.pdf
