Longview Philanthropy — Far-UVC Event (2023)

Longview Philanthropy
Award Date:
To support an event on far-UVC technology.

Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $165,000 to Longview Philanthropy (a project of Effective Ventures Foundation UK) to support an event, hosted by Kevin Esvelt and David Sliney, on far-UVC technology. This event will bring together several dozen experts to create and promote a research agenda to investigate whether far-UVC light can be used to safely reduce indoor pathogen transmission.

This follows Open Philanthropy’s November 2022 support for a similar but smaller event in late 2022, and falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
