We've designed the Data Futures Lab as a space where Mozilla, grantees and fellows can learn from each other. Here are some of the ways we are sharing what we learn:


Lab Research

The Lab works closely with the Insights Team at Mozilla. Through this partnership, the Lab produces research that informs the strategy of the Lab and contributes to the knowledge base of the data stewardship field.

The Data Futures Lab will invest in promising approaches to data stewardship using a variety of instruments. These are our current grantmaking funds:


Prototype Fund

The Prototype Fund is a grantmaking and lab learning environment for the collaborative and experimental development of new projects that have the potential to shift power in and around systems of data. We hope to provide an incubator-like environment for projects which are testing new approaches to data stewardship.

Infrastructure Fund

The Infrastructure Fund is a grantmaking and lab learning environment for projects that can change the technical and legal fabric of data landscapes to enable more sustainable data stewardship innovation. We hope to seed the field with 'building blocks' that can be used to implement new models for data stewardship in real products and services.
