The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $613,380 over three years to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP). The grant will support a project to assess Chinese and Indian perspectives on biosecurity risks associated with advances in biotechnology.
CEIP plans to collaborate on this project with its China-based center located at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and its India-based center in Delhi. CEIP’s stated goals for the project are to: understand Chinese and Indian perceptions of how rapid advances in biotechnology will change the risk landscape in coming years and decades; understand the degree to which Chinese and Indian policymakers are engaged with biotechnology risks, and what unique considerations and experiences affect their thinking; and ultimately make recommendations for further study and work.
This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
