Forecasting Research Institute
Award Date:
To support projects to advance the science of forecasting.

Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $6,305,675 over three years to support the Forecasting Research Institute (FRI)’s work on projects to advance the science of forecasting as a tool to improve public policy and reduce existential risk. This includes developing a new modular forecasting platform and conducting research to test different forecasting techniques.

This follows Open Philanthropy’s October 2021 support for planning work by FRI Chief Scientist Philip Tetlock, and falls within its work on global catastrophic risks.

The grant amount was updated in June 2023.
