The Global Innovation Program is the vehicle through which Perry World House advances its mission of research and policy impact.

The Global Innovation Program takes a three-pronged approach:  It draws on the extensive expertise of individuals in schools, departments, centers, and programs across Penn. It bridges the worlds of academia and policy making by engaging thought-leaders from around the world in meaningful exchange and collaborative, interdisciplinary research. And it is establishing a growing global network of leaders and influencers who value—and increasingly rely upon—Perry World House as a non-partisan resource for innovative ideas.

Specifically, the Global Innovation Program presents a full roster of workshops and colloquia across its two research themes that examine issues from multiple perspectives, and translates the findings into actionable policy proposals. It provides fellowships that bring individuals whose work addresses specific global challenges into the Penn community. It widely disseminates new knowledge through publications, podcasts, and direct engagement with policy makers around the globe.
