The Alan Turing Institute is joining a vibrant community of NGOs, charities, private sector providers, universities and think tanks addressing global identity challenges in the digital age.

We invite researchers (Turing Fellows, Turing Research Fellows, Doctoral Student Supervisors and others) and other academics from our partner universities to apply to this research call. Applications from other UK-based universities may also be considered, subject to mutual acceptability of contractual terms.

This initiative is funded through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
