The Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative (BERI) is once again accepting applications from university-affiliated groups and individuals interested in receiving our support. Applications are due June 26th.

Winning applicants would be eligible for free services from BERI, like purchasing equipment, food, and software, maintaining an Uber account for easy travel, and hiring experts for research support; see How does BERI help our collaborators? for more info on that. If you’re a member of a research group, or an individual researcher, working on longtermist projects, I encourage you to apply. If you know anyone who might be interested, please share this with them!

BERI is a public charity whose mission is to improve human civilization’s long-term prospects for survival and flourishing. We’ve been working with university groups since 2017, and have provided over $4 million of administrative and operational support on longtermist projects with groups at UC Berkeley, Oxford, Stanford, MIT, and elsewhere.
