These are the funding recipients of Call 16!

Funding amounting to 740,000 euros was awarded for innovative Internet projects, scholarships and research as part of netidee Call 16, the Internet Stiftung's funding program.

"The objective of the netidee funding program is to promote and further develop the Internet in Austria with open source projects," said Andreas Koman, Chairman of the Internet Stiftung, by way of introduction. "114 applications for funding were submitted and 12 projects and 7 scholarships were finally selected by the netidee jury. These are exciting and innovative projects and topics! I congratulate the 2021 funding recipients," Koman continued at the digital best of event.

In addition to project funding, two project teams received an additional prize. The special prize for Data Understanding was awarded to the DALICC project at Fachhochschule St. Pölten. DALICC is a license compatibility test for software developers and data engineers that can be used to quickly and efficiently clarify the legal admissibility of the use of data and components from third-party providers.

This year, the Martin-Prager Integration Prize was awarded to the project "derWarteraum" (the waiting room) of the Servicecenter ÖGS.barrierefrei, which operates a telephone switching service for deaf and hearing-impaired people. As part of the project, a digital waiting room is programmed.

The netidee Science fund was awarded to the research project "FRESH: Foundations of Reasoning in the Shape Constraint Language" by Shqiponja Ahmetaj, who works at the Institute of Logic and Computation at the TU Wien.
