Ecologic Institute is a private not-for-profit think tank for applied environmental research, policy analysis and consultancy with offices in Berlin, Brussels and Vienna in the EU, and Washington DC and San Mateo, CA in the US.
Ecologic Institute was founded in 1995 as an independent research institute. Since its founding, Ecologic Institute has built a reputation for excellence in transdisciplinary and policy-relevant research. Through its participation in large-scale international collaborations, Ecologic Institute increases the relevance of its project results and improves communication among scientists, policymakers and the public. Ecologic Institute also provides ongoing expert advice on emerging issues through its framework agreements with the European Parliament (Consultancy for the Environment Committee and Framework Contract Development Policy), the European Environment Agency and the European Commission, eg. DG Research. The insights of Ecologic Institute's staff provide practical ways forward for policymakers seeking to address complex challenges. Over the years, Ecologic Institute's work has informed the decision-making processes of a wide variety of international institutions, national ministries, sub-national and local authorities and non-profit organisations.
Wilton Park organises over fifty events a year in the UK and overseas, bringing together leading representatives from the worlds of politics, diplomacy, academia, business, civil society, the military and the media. Wilton Park focuses on issues of international security, prosperity and justice. Wilton Park meetings provide a neutral environment where conflicting views can be expressed and debated openly and calmly, allowing acceptable compromise and resolution to be achieved. Wilton Park events provoke lively debate and promote inclusivity among the policy-makers and opinion formers who participate at our events. Participant numbers are limited to ensure that everyone has the chance to share their views, and discussions are non-attributable to encourage frank exchanges and open dialogue.
Wilton Park has an international network and strong relationships with government providing insight into the most topical issues and the engagement of a diverse blend of experts to discuss them. Wilton Park encourages and facilitates on-going high-level collaboration which shapes the agenda and pushes forward international policy. It documents and evaluates its conferences, producing final reports for participants. Wilton Park also develops strategic, intellectual and financial partnerships with like-minded organisations to focus on bringing people together to resolve global issues.
