Deadline extended: Grants available for research on the energy and environmental implications of the digital economy

The Environmental Law Institute, in partnership with the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at UC Berkeley and the Center for Industrial Ecology at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, has received a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to support a two-year project focused on the implications of the digital economy for energy and the environment. The project is designed to create a multidisciplinary body of research on the energy and environmental impacts of sharing platforms, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies. The project will select 8-10 researchers for grants of up to $35,000. Funds are available for international proposals, with preference given to those done with U.S. partners. Proposals must should be submitted by June 15, 2108. (Note that the previous announced deadline of May 31 has been extended to June 15.)
