Small grants for workshops in social ontology

One of the key aims of ISOS is to foster innovative approaches and collaborations in social ontology, as well as to support research in social ontology regionally and globally. In service of this, we have started a pilot program to help fund workshops in social ontology.

In 2022, we will be financially supporting 11 workshops on a variety of topics in social ontology -- all organized by ISOS members. These workshops were selected from an open call for applications in late 2021. We will provide more information about the workshops as it becomes available. Congratulations to all our grant recipients!
