Peter Murray-Rust

Liberating scientific facts


So, what's the big idea?

Peter is a pioneer in text mining through The Content Mine, an advocacy and implementation project consisting of a community, framework and toolset which facilitate the freeing of scientific data and building of further tools for improved open Science, Technology and Medicine communication.

We support Peter because access to scientific facts across the board is vital for continued progress as a species and society.

Peter Murray-Rust's flash grant nominations

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.

Spend breakdown

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.
