DigData is on informational tour with Mitrovica as the first stop

The Kosovo Millennium Foundation (MFK) is offering information sessions to all parties interested in engaging in the second DigData Challenge, which focuses on innovative ways to make air quality data useful and informative for public and government decision making. The DigData information tour is occurring throughout the week to several Kosovo municipalities: Mitrovica, Gracanica, Gjilan, Prizren, Peja, Ferizaj and ends in Pristina on 22 August.

 

Gentiana Mahmuti, Data & Governance Specialist, explained that the purpose of this grant is to open the air quality data, access it, and use it to change the decision-making model that is based on credible data from Kosovo institutions, the private sector, innovators, students, civil society and other stakeholders.

 

Megi Pishtari, MFK’s Grant Consultant presented details of the grant application process. This challenge has a total value of $200,000, with individual grantees eligible for up to $50,000 for their proposals addressing the issue of using air quality data – in combination with other health, economic, transport, construction, or other data – to empower Kosovo citizens to make informed data decisions and take constructive personal and civic action.

 

The information tour is organized in collaboration with the non-governmental organization ARDA-RDA and aims to increase local diversity and minority participation in grant access. For more details or to attend a session, please contact.
