The U.S. and India Are Still Doing Open Government Together

BY Nick Judd | Tuesday, July 19 2011

Apropo, perhaps, of India's apparent withdrawal from leadership of a recently announced multilateral open government initiative, the U.S. State Department today released a fact sheet on joint projects between the U.S. and India.

According to the fact sheet, the U.S.-India S&T Endowment Board, a group established in 2009 to promote science and technology research, will announce in September awards of up to $500,000 to fund projects "with the potential to improve health and empower citizens in both countries."

The fact sheet also puts a deadline on the release of an open-source Data.gov platform for providing government data for citizen use: The first quarter of 2012.
