Stanford University's School of Humanities and Sciences reports on our investments in new impact labs.
From the article:
Misinformation on the internet. Anti-democratic beliefs. Financial contagion. Educational and health inequality.
These are just a few of the threats facing the United States and the world that Stanford Impact Labs aims to tackle with its latest investments, which total $4 million for eight projects.
A core initiative of the university’s Long-Range Vision, Stanford Impact Labs supports projects led by Stanford researchers and partners at nonprofit organizations, government agencies, businesses, and other universities. These teams, known as impact labs, develop practical plans to address pressing social problems.
