The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $14,605 to the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) to support a side event during the December 2017 Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) Meeting of State Parties. The event will focus on IAP’s experience engaging international scientists in biosecurity work, particularly from developing countries, and is part of our general effort to strengthen the BWC.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
