The Institute for Technology and Society (ITS) invites researchers, students, and professionals to apply for the ITS Global Policy Fellowship Program 2023. The Program is currently in its 7th edition and has previously welcomed 25 fellows from several countries who share a common interest: technology and its interfaces with Law.

The selected candidates will be able to choose one of our three primary areas of knowledge to develop their research:

– Rights and Technology: content moderation, personal data protection, generative artificial intelligence, technodiversity, metaverse and future of the web;

– GovTech: new development models, distributed technologies, sandbox and regulatory innovation, digital identity;

– Democracy and Technology: disinformation, civic engagement, quadratic voting, future of work and others.

The ITS Global Policy Fellowship Program 2023 is a unique opportunity for those interested in expanding their knowledge about the Brazilian technological context. The Institute’s team has prepared an intensive four-week program, which includes a series of meetings with ITS partners in Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, and São Paulo.
