European Research & Innovation Days: High-level conference: Institutional Philanthropy Supporting Science, Research and Innovation

Project description

A helping hand for Europe’s leading platform for philanthropy

In Europe, institutional philanthropy includes more than 147 000 philanthropic organisations. As a leading platform for philanthropy in Europe, the European Foundation Centre (EFC) promotes institutional philanthropy as a means of effecting change – from eradicating deadly diseases and making the world’s populations healthier to combating climate change and fighting for global human rights. The EU-funded EFC project, will organise a high-level session at the European Commission’s inaugural European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels in September 2019. It will work with its members – philanthropic organisations from more than 30 countries – to foster peer-learning. The aim will be to boost collaboration by connecting actors and joint actions, as well as advocating favourable policy and regulatory environments for philanthropy.

Objective

As a leading platform for philanthropy in Europe, the EFC works to strengthen the sector and make the case for institutional philanthropy as a formidable means of effecting change.

We believe institutional philanthropy has a unique, crucial and timely role to play in meeting the critical challenges societies face. More people and causes benefit from institutional philanthropy than ever before, from eradicating deadly diseases and making the world’s populations healthier to combating climate change and fighting for global human rights and equality.

Working closely with our members, a dynamic network of strategically-minded philanthropic organisations from more than 30 countries, we:

Foster peer-learning by surfacing the expertise and experience embedded in the sector
Enhance collaboration by connecting people for inspiration and joint action
Advocate for favourable policy and regulatory environments for philanthropy
Build a solid evidence base through knowledge and intelligence
Raise the visibility of philanthropy’s value and impact
