The Digital Infrastructure Incubator at Code for Science & Society

Bridging research and practice.


Supporting open source project leaders implementing best practices in sustainability, governance, and community health.

The Digital Infrastructure Incubator @Code for Science & Society is part of a cohort of grant funding provided by the Ford Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Omidyar Network and the Mozilla Open Source Support Program in collaboration with the Open Collective Foundation. Read more about the cohort and funders here.


Spinning the incubator model from its intimacy with venture capital to alternate political horizons better serving public interests.

The Digital Infrastructure Incubator will hold space for and provide material support to emergent leaders as they imagine possibility and design strategy. Applicants may develop organizational frameworks, draft organizational literature, plot collaborations or related work while considering what may be learned from collective action and labor organizing across the tech landscape and beyond; what it might mean to decolonize digital infrastructure; and other histories of power and ideology inflected in our work.
