The goal of the Fellows program is to develop a cohort of academics who are able to understand technology challenges in interdisciplinary terms: engineers who can talk supply chain management and the role of public engagement in federal regulation; journalists who can speak fluently with entrepreneurs and critically interrogate lawyers advocating for preferred policies; entrepreneurs who can ground technologists in the reality of what can be and push lawyers past their focus on what can’t be; and other permutations involving the law, humanities, sciences, and other fields. During the 2020-2021 academic year Fellows’ primary obligation will be consistent engagement in a series of workshops and recordings aimed at developing this goal.
Applications for the Fellows program remain open and are reviewed on a rolling basis, though there are no current spots available for fall 2020. You can learn more here.
