Stanford Existential Risks Conference, April 17 & 18

Humanity faces its most dangerous century yet. Together, we can work to reduce existential risks. SERI (the Stanford Existential Risk Initiative)  will be bringing together the academic and professional communities dedicated to mitigating existential and global catastrophic risks — large-scale threats which could permanently curtail humanity’s future potential. 

April 17-18, 2021

Join leading academics for 1:1 networking, exclusive panels, talks and Q&As, discussion of research/funding/internship/job opportunities, and more. The conference will offer ample opportunities for potential collaborators, mentors and mentees, funders and grantees, and employers and potential employees to connect with one another. This conference will provide an opportunity for the global community interested in safeguarding the future to create a common understanding of the importance and scale of existential risks, what we can do to mitigate them, and the growing field of existential risk mitigation.
