New strategic partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung
The Robert Bosch Stiftung becomes a founding donor to Chatham House’s second century.
A new three-year strategic partnership marks the latest in a decade-long collaboration between Chatham House and the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The partnership is grounded in the shared vision of finding solutions for societal challenges based on independent, multi-perspective, and in-depth research and convening.
The funding will help Chatham House to remain at the forefront of policy research and pursue its three second century goals to enable and build peaceful, sustainable and inclusive societies. The grant from the Robert Bosch Stiftung is a major milestone in the foundation’s long-standing support of Chatham House, which dates back to 2010 and includes grants for research, network building and fellowships in the Queen Elizabeth II Academy from the Black Sea Region, Europe, and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Dr Robin Niblett, Director of Chatham House, yesterday said:
“it is an honour to be able to count the Robert Bosch Stiftung amongst the group of donors making commitments to the long-term future of Chatham House in the Institute’s centenary year and at this critical juncture in international affairs. We look forward to working with the Robert Bosch Stiftung in a dynamic and collaborative way towards tackling today’s most pressing challenges.”
Sandra Breka, Member of the Board of Management of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, yesterday said:
“Chatham House has been at the forefront of knowledge generation for a century. In our mission to maximize the impact of our work after a major strategic realignment, this partnership is an invaluable asset. We look forward to further deepen our collaboration on the most urgent global issues in the years to come.”
The Robert Bosch Stiftung has provided significant long-term support to Chatham House for the past decade and has been an institutional partner since 2014. The foundation was the supporter and co-creator of the institute’s flagship Common Future Conversations platform and was an early founding donor to the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs supporting 19 fellows in total. The foundation was also a contributor to the award-winning Tribes of Europe research and public engagement project (2015 –17) alongside a network of other European foundations. It was also a supporter of innovative cross-regional projects encouraging linkages and learnings between Central Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.
