Safeguarding our passage through the 21st Century
The Centre for Study of Existential Risk is an interdisciplinary research centre focused on the study of human extinction-level risks that may emerge from technological advances. We aim to combine key insights from the best minds across disciplines to tackle the greatest challenge of the coming century: safely harnessing our rapidly-developing technological power.
The Centre is currently seeking funding for several of its planned research programmes, and welcomes expressions of interest and offers of support.
