 * GetOSSWatchFundingAdvice - what can OSS Watch do for your project during the bid writing phase

Welcome to the [http://www.oss-watch.ac.uk OSS Watch] wiki for open source software development in UK Higher and Further Education.

Materials on this wiki are continually in-development, we therefore welcome your input. If you are after materials that have passed through our vigorous quality control process you should visit our [http://www.oss-watch.ac.uk main website].

The pages in this wiki are notes on software development practices as they relate to funded research and development within UK higher and further education. These materials are aimed at management and technical staff within these projects. Although we have a UK focus, much of the information here is also of relevance to funded projects in educational organisations outside of the UK.

These documents are "in development", we welcome your input either directly to the wiki or via our community-development mailing list. If you wish to write to this wiki, please e-mail info@oss-watch.ac.uk
