Dear NCD'ers,

This is fantastic news from Lee!

I'm out of the Museum today and Monday, but will be in touch with Roger after that to pin down the refinements that are required.

Speak with you soon,

Hi Neil

The TDWG Infrastructure Project Team has finally evaluated all the Round-2
proposals. As mentioned earlier, we had 28 proposals for a total of
US$704,255 for a pot of ~US$250,000.

The good news is that the Team has supported the funding of all of your

#16 - 'RDFS for NCD'
#17 - 'Identify and database biodiversity organisations'
#18 - 'Intro to NCD document'
#19 - 'Ontology-NCD integration'
#20 - 'NCD Workshop'

There are a number of possible enhancements and some tuning that the Team
wanted to discuss with you. We all believed that 'tweaking' of your projects
should result in outcomes with greater benefit to the community. Roger has
been tasked with this and reporting back to me. 

I have reserved additional funding that could be applied to ensure that the
projects maximize their potential.

Congratulations and best wishes Neil!
