An open network of connections and partnerships, to transform knowledge into change

scroll down

The ISI Foundation is driven by a distinct ambition: to move beyond the pure generation and sharing of scientific knowledge and actively promote a positive change in the society. This commitment is embodied in a diverse array of partnerships, relationships, and dialogues that go beyond the academic sphere.

The ISI Foundation acts as a collaborative nexus, connecting a broad community of stakeholders and entities engaged in or benefiting from data technologies, including global agencies, governments, philanthropy networks, major funding organizations, and the media. In this effort, ISI Foundation operates synergistically with CRT Foundation and its ecosystem.

In parallel with the institutional level, ISI Foundation directly stimulates and supports the communities of researchers and practitioners relevant to its mission, by means of research visits and sabbaticals, internships for university students, networks of alumni of the Foundation, a program of Lagrange Fellows to recognize scholars of its network who contributed to ISI Foundation’s mission, and more. The most prominent community-building action of the Foundation is the Lagrange Prize – CRT Foundation.
