The Institute is looking to develop and demonstrate what a healthy information ecosystem could look like, and how to get there.

The fellowship is six-month hybrid programme with in-person attendance in Cambridge required for the first week in early October 2022 and the final week of the programme in March 2023. For the remaining weeks, residency in Cambridge is not required but can be beneficial to Institute Fellows’ work.
