Everyone benefits when professional expertise and best practices are shared widely. We work to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing between institutions and across international boundaries in areas from medicine, to academic research, to disaster preparedness. SNF’s global identity means making grants in countries around the world, but also making connections between people in those countries.
