In an increasingly interconnected and complex world, political decisions and societal debates will have to include global perspectives and best practices. Knowledge of innovative solutions to societal challenges will prove essential in this process. The Foundation therefore supports the development of evidence-based policy recommendations and solutions. To that end, the Foundation facilitates open dialogue involving decision-makers, opinion leaders, and international experts from different fields.
