Shaping AI
to better serve people & society

For a fair, inclusive and sustainable future, we must ensure that Artificial Intelligence is developed and deployed to best serve the needs of people and society.  

Too often AI is shaped by the interests of governments and the tech industry without adequate concern for the individuals and communities it affects. This can lead to technologies that entrench inequality, exacerbate social injustice and undermine people’s rights.

That’s why the European AI & Society Fund empowers a diverse ecosystem of civil society organisations to shape policies around AI in the public interest and galvanises the philanthropic sector to sustain this vital work.

Who we fund

We support organisations from across Europe that want to shape Artificial Intelligence to better serve people and society. Some of our grantees have previous expertise working on AI, digital rights and technology. Others represent particular communities or fight different kinds of social injustice and want to address how AI is affecting their work.

Our partners

The European AI & Society Fund is supported by a group of philanthropic foundations that share our mission to shape AI in the public interest.
