Beeck Center Research Series
About this Collection
The Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation at Georgetown University was launched in 2014 through the generosity of Alberto and Olga Maria Beeck. Part lab, part think tank, and part classroom, the Beeck Center works with students and practitioners to innovate new solutions to systemic social problems. The Beeck Center engages global leaders to drive social change at scale. We conduct academic research, hold convenings and provide trainings, classes, and experiential labs for current and emerging leaders.
Building on Georgetown University’s core values and global reach, we drive creative thinking around issues at the intersection of data, technology, capital, and policy innovation. We invite a diverse community of thinkers to join us in looking beyond the obvious, to ask the unasked questions, and find adaptable solutions in today’s changing world.
You can read more about the Beeck Center's initiatives on the Center's website.
