Bridging the Gap encourages the leadership of both foundations and universities to take concrete steps towards increased engagement with one another, including partnering in the development of research agendas and guidelines for assessing the impact of scholars’ policy contributions. We achieve this through workshops and ongoing research and commentary.
Our biennial New Era International Conference assesses how scholars and policymakers in key strategic regions of the world view the political and economic choices that will drive global foreign policy over the next 5-10 years. Bridging the Gap partners with a host institution and invites leading thinkers from academia, business, and government for three days of structured discussion on an area of uncertainty in the evolving international environment. Our 2018 conference will focus on the provision of global public goods.
