New Project form

Is this a commercial project?

Select Yes or No. Code for Ireland does not do projects that are of direct commercial benefit to project members.

Your Name (required)

Your e-mail (required)

Project title (can be provisional title) (required)

One-sentence description of project (max 200 words) (required)

Longer description of project (required)

The above is the required information – you can click the Send button at the bottom if you like now (after you prove you're not a bot), but the more of the optional information below that you fill in, the better idea we will have of the project.

Who is the 'target audience' for the project?

Please describe why the project is needed

The aim is not to create something in addition to something that already exists - unless Code for Ireland already have produced the initial solution or are working with the original solution provider.

Are there steps that you have taken already to establish that the project is needed?

Select Yes or No. What sounds like a nice project may never gain any traction on the ground without community buy-in.

Can you give a brief summary of these steps?

Have you checked whether similar projects already exist?

Select Yes or No. Be sure to check out the projects at Code for America, but also the related international sites.

What did you find out?

Any current websites / apps of yours that we could see? Please paste names and links below.

Please attach files (Word documents, etc, max 3) below, if you think they are relevant. Limit: 5Mb each.
