SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 17, 2018
Foresight Institute, a leading think tank and public interest organization focused on catalyzing future technologies, announced the availability of applications to the new Class of Fellows today.
The Foresight Fellowship is an exclusive one-year supportive program committed to giving participants the support and mentorship to accelerate their bold ideas into the future. The ten (currently unknown) Fellows to be selected are right now working on technologies that have massive potential for the future, especially with technology that is relatively undervalued in the media.
They will be reviewed on the criteria of technical ability, originality, experience, and potential for impacting the state of these technologies in a big way. Each Fellow will receive personalized attention, exposure to opportunity, and mentorship from leaders in their fields. During the one-year program, Fellows will be invited to engage in events, connect to mentors and other Fellows, and increase their skills to succeed with their endeavors.
Steve Burgess, President of Foresight Institute says, “There’s nothing new in the world… is an adage that has met its match. The Foresight Fellows are up to the challenge and we look forward to what they bring forth. The Foresight Fellowship Program is only in its second year, and we’re excited to see what the new Fellows will bring to possible technological breakthrough for a better world for everyone.”
Since 1993, Foresight Institute has been rewarding those who are making strides in the field of Nanotechnology with the Feynman Prize. In 2016, one of its former Feynman Prize winners, Sir James Fraser Stoddart, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work with molecular machines. In 2018, another of its Feynman Prize winners, Professor Michelle Yvonne Simmons, was named 2018 Australian of the Year for her pioneering work in Quantum Computing. Foresight Institute recognizes that providing a strong network and knowledge base for new Fellows to access will accelerate their missions and reflect Foresight’s goals to further support those making important strides in key fields. The early identification and support of big research ideas is where Foresight Institute creates the most impact.
