- To support Professor Charles Anderson's research on production of food from unconventional sources in a situation of low global insolation.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $109,063 to Penn State University to support Professor Charles Anderson’s research on production of food from unconventional sources in a situation of low global insolation. This funding will support a team of faculty and graduate, undergraduate, and postdoctoral students to develop a proposal outlining possible future research projects that might alleviate food shortages following a great power war or similar event leading to nuclear winter.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's work on scientific research and is related to its efforts to reduce global catastrophic risks.
