2023 Digital Infrastructure Insights Fund

Looks like a possibly useful opportunity, where “Researchers based outside of the United States and Europe are especially encouraged to apply”!!!

Here’s what the website says:

The D//F (Digital Infrastructure Insights Fund) is a multi-funder initiative by Ford Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Omidyar Network, Schmidt Futures and Open Collective sustaining a platform for researchers and practitioners to better understand how open digital infrastructure is built and deployed.
We’re creating a body of research and implementation insights that advance our goal to ensure a public commons of technology, sustainably developed and maintained, for the benefit of everyone.

  • Selection of successful projects completed: October 25th 2023 (tbc.)
