28 de January de 2020
The Institute of Technology and Society (ITS) invites researchers, students and professionals to apply for the ITS Global Policy Fellowship Program. The program is in its 7th edition and has already received 35 fellows from different countries around the world with a common interest: technology and its interfaces with the law.
Our Global Fellows will be able to choose one of our four main areas of work to develop their research in, namely:
– Democracy & Technology (artificial intelligence, civic engagement, online participation, and others);
– Law & Technology (self-sovereign identity, digital identity, A.I., connectivity, freedom of expression, privacy and other topics on Internet regulation);
– Education (intellectual property, digital entrepreneurship, online teaching, and others);
– Rethinking Innovation (govtech, new models of development, distributed ledger technology, entrepreneurship, and others);
The ITS Fellowship Program will offer the opportunity for those interested in internet and technology policy to deepen their knowledge about the Brazilian technology environment. We have organized an intensive 4-week program for our fellows, which includes meeting ITS partners in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo in order to visit some of the largest national and international technology companies operating in Brazil, as well as governmental entities and non-governmental organizations. This is an opportunity to exchange ideas, formulate projects and do intense research.
