Гранты от Фонда Такаги

The Takagi Fund for Citizen Science is inviting grant applications for the year 2022 from groups and individuals in Asia pursuing “Citizen Science”.

The purpose of Takagi Fund is to foster and support independent Citizen Scientists who propose well-founded criticism and scientific counterarguments about problems and threats caused by present-day science and technology. Such criticism and counterarguments can be based on independent research and analysis conducted by citizens themselves with appropriate support from committed experts.

The Takagi Fund expects that a true spirit of science, one which opens the way for a sustainable future, should spring up from the voluntary acts of citizens equipped with social awareness, a sense of justice and some essential scientific training, rather than from the occupational activities of “professional” scientists controlled by governments and/or corporate interests.
