Some of the specific areas you can consider include topics around addressing AI safety & risk, Biosecurity, Climate change, Designing institutions for future generations, Space governance, Measuring effectiveness, Measuring happiness, topics around Health and development of people living in the global south and topics around Animal welfare. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and your project can certainly be on a topic outside the list.
We welcome projects where fellows conduct academic research with the aim of publishing their findings. The research findings could be published as journal articles, lengthy blog posts, book reviews or reports.
