Project poster

The Gates Foundation Grand Challenges has teamed up with InfoVision in order to develop a point-in-time first encounter analysis and bias report regarding their current blind review methodology. The Grand Challenges Explorations (GCE) team needs to know whether their “blind review” process of grants is working to ensure all types of organizations are being considered and brought into the loop. There should also be no biases altering decisions throughout.
