A new interdisciplinary research centre designed to investigate how to do the most good has opened at the University, thanks to generous philanthropic support from Luke Ding, Shamil Chandaria and the Open Philanthropy Project.
The Global Priorities Institute (GPI) will work on fundamental questions relating to how best to improve the world. It will bring together established academics, early career fellows, academic visitors and postgraduate students to conduct world-class research on topics ranging from animal sentience and altruistic economics, to donor collaboration and moral uncertainty. The findings of these investigations will be used to inform the decision-making of individuals and institutions seeking to do as much good as possible.
