Meridian operates as a non-partisan partnership among leading universities and research institutions. Partner institutions commit to providing active leaders and staff for local activities that are designed to stimulate interdisciplinary dialogue on grand challenges and global Meridian collaboration activities.
Partners support outreach to new Meridian members in their region from academia, business, NGOs, and the public sector. They promote regional member participation in global online forums, events, and Working Groups.
Through participation in Meridian, partners benefit from the connection to new expertise via international colleagues, unlimited opportunity to engage in a wide variety of fields, and participation in impactful global research.
