Two new projects just signed in the NGI portofolio addressing Search topic:
- NGI Search (8.5M€) will fund open source technologies for search @mirkopresser
- Openwebsearch (8.5M€) focuses on Search index infrastructure

Both projects will resort to community contributions through open calls (so called cascading) that will open later this year. Stay tune.

@EC_NGI @mirkopresser for #NGI to help the #openweb we need them to shift balance from funding only hard tech to funding social tech and improving #UX as a core agenda.

Hard tech support is simply feeding the #geekproblem

And yes, I know 90% of the funding is poured directly down the drain, it's the 5% that might have some use am interested in affecting #OMN
