The R Consortium is a business association organized under the Linux Foundation with a mission to support the R Community. Founded just before useR! 2015, it has already become a focus for R Community activities. During its first year, the R Consortium has begun to evaluate and fund projects while dealing with all of the internal start-up issues of developing internal structures, policies and operating procedures. In this talk, I will attempt to provide some insight into the workings of the R Consortium, describe the process behind the recent call for proposals, discuss the projects selected for funding so far, and provide some guidance on writing a proposal for the next round of funding which will close on July 10th.
