Data & Society is looking to assemble its 2015 class of fellows. The fellowship program brings together a network of researchers, entrepreneurs, activists, policy creators, journalists, geeks, and public intellectuals, who would have partial residence in Manhattan. Potential fellows are invited to imagine a specific project or activity that they will execute to help society’s understanding of and ability to adapt to a world permeated by data.
Data & Society is ‘open to a wide range of potential outputs, from white papers and op-eds to multi-stakeholder events to technological artifacts’, and ‘especially interested in interdisciplinary, cross-sector, or crazy ideas that tackle challenges facing society that don’t easily fit into a predefined category or box’.
The deadline for applications is 13 December. Details on how to apply here.
