IOG Delegation Insights

Like many SPOs we were hopeful of receiving IOG delegation in this current round, but were not selected. To better understand the process, and learn how to be selected next time, we performed some analysis on the pools that were chosen.

The raw data is available on our website here.

For more information on what the IOG delegation is, please refer to the IOG delegation announcement post.
