Daniel’s primary interest is Crowdcrafting and its underlying software PyBossa, a citizen science framework that allows and supports citizens and researchers to create citizen science projects and gather collaborative communities around them, using volunteer sensing, computing and thinking.
We support Daniel because we believe that science is not for ivory towers, it is for real people making sense of the world.
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.
