We fund the development of – and advocacy for – tractable ideas to change how government agencies allocate funding and regulate research and data-sharing, how scientific achievement is measured at all levels, and how journals and other institutions influence scientists’ incentives. We also support some public goods that we hope will facilitate discovery and information sharing.
