Over the last year, the Northwestern Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs has engaged more than 70 researchers from 27 Northwestern University departments and 9 Northwestern schools in its Idea Incubation Process.

The process offers Northwestern faculty unique opportunities to explore global problems and workshop solutions alongside practitioners, community partners and scholars from across disciplines. It encourages intellectual risk-taking, promotes dialogue around provocative new research questions, and catalyzes creative research projects with the potential for real-world impact.

On Wednesday, June 1, Northwestern Buffett will host a showcase of the research projects stemming from its 2021-22 Idea Incubation Process. The showcase will feature faculty presentations on collaborative, transnational research projects Northwestern Buffett will support in the coming year, as well as commentary from the panel of experts who judged the merits of this year’s project proposals on the basis of their potential for societal impact. The showcase will also offer faculty updates from Northwestern Buffett’s existing Global Working Groups and the projects they proposed for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 Idea Incubation Workshops.

RSVP to attend in-person or virtually via Zoom for the showcase on June 1, 2022.
