Adam would like to see scientific research results benefit a far wider audience through current, accessible and replicable dissemination. He is building some of the necessary platforms, methodologies and communities to support open source collaborative knowledge production and publication as part of the academic process.
Open access journal publishing is a good start to making scientific output more accessible. We support Adam as his work goes a step further by providing an improved set of approaches and tools to record and share the research process along with the findings.
Twice a year we award a number of small grants to a collection of social change agents, no strings attached, in support of their work. We call these Flash Grants and recipients are selected based on nominations from our Fellows. Each award is worth $5,000.
At the heart of our co-investment fellowship model is the principle that Fellows continue to invest in their own ideas. The Foundation amplifies the Fellow’s investment by matching it at least tenfold, along with covering the cost of their time for the year.
The figures you see here do not reflect each Fellow’s fellowship year funding, but rather the funds unlocked within our financial year, as the fellowship years start either March or September and Fellows are not required to spend the available funds proportionately throughout the year.
