(We created theComcast Innovation Fund to support important research into the future of the Internet, with a focus on broadband, security and open-source development. In this series, we highlight recipients and their work.)

The Comcast Innovation Fund is pleased to announce an award to Johns Hopkins University’s School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Center for Transatlantic Relations to support a proposal entitled “Democracy, The Internet, and Transatlantic Relations” under the direction of Susan Ness, Senior Fellow.

This gift will help enable the SAIS Center to convene discussions with policy leaders and other key stakeholders to explore a number of key issues affecting the Internet on both sides of the Atlantic, including freedom of speech, privacy and public safety.

We look forward to seeing this important work develop over the course of 2018.
