Expert Team

Keen to tackle "problems without passport", our mission is to unite the best minds society can offer. Only by sharing thoughts, knowledge, and constructive criticism can we truly improve understanding of current and future challenges. 

This is why our Team is built on internationalisation, interdisciplinarity, inclusion, and, above all, high competence. As of today, we count more than 100 experts from all over the world, from Peru to Australia, featuring dozens of backgrounds and nationalities.  

Most of our pundits come from top-notch academic institutions, including Stanford, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, KCL, and LSE. A number of our professionals work for world leading companies and think tanks, whilst others are part of private, public, and even global organisations, like the UN.
