Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs

Idea Dialogues

Is there a problem ​of global significance you want to solve through collaborative research? Are you interested in the opportunity to speak informally with colleagues across the University about the issues and questions relevant to that problem?

Northwestern Buffett is sponsoring an ongoing series of breakfast and lunch idea dialogues, each dedicated to a global problem requiring impactful research, and invites you to propose a topic of interest. We'll coordinate and provide facilitating support, including working with you to generate a list of invitees with diverse expertise from across campus.

Note: These idea dialogues must be open to all faculty members at Northwestern and must address a concrete contemporary or anticipated future problem of international interest that requires an interdisciplinary approach.
