Overview
A previous grant supported creation of an MIT executive education course on nuclear energy; a renewal would move it toward being self-sustaining. Countries diversifying their energy mix with nuclear power face myriad challenges to operate safely and securely and hew to nonproliferation norms, and this course trains those with broad influence on the development of nuclear energy in their countries. Matched by the Sloan Foundation, this will be a final grant with future course costs to be covered by tuition and scholarships.

The MIT Election Data and Science Lab advances and disseminates scientific knowledge about the conduct of elections, primarily in the United States but with attention to the rest of the world. By addressing the multiple audiences of academic researchers, the general public, and practitioners, it serves a unique role among individuals and institutions dedicated to improving the conduct of American elections and supports a growing network of election science research centers across the U.S. This supplemental grant will expand capacity to meet the unanticipated demands of the 2020 elections.
