Code for Science and Society and the IOI Steering Committee announced today that Invest in Open Infrastructure (IOI) has been generously supported with an award of $150K USD from Schmidt Futures, a philanthropic initiative founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt. IOI is an effort to enable durable, scalable, and long lasting open scientific and scholarly infrastructure to emerge, thrive, and deliver its benefits on a global scale. We are a global coalition of projects, organizations, and initiatives actively working to build a sustainable future for open scholarly infrastructure. Stratos is a proud supporter of IOI and our Founder, Kristen Ratan, is on the IOI Steering Committee.
With this initial support, IOI will be opening the search for a Director in the next few weeks. This will be a full time, remote-friendly position offered in partnership with IOI’s fiscal sponsor Code for Science & Society. Stay tuned for more details on this opportunity, and visit investinopen.org to show your support and get the latest news.
