Deadline: November 30, 2017 and February 1, 2018.
Applications are open for the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Conference Program. Bellagio conferences establish new connections across disciplines and geographies, encourage dynamic, small group interactions, and promote innovative and creative thinking—all in a serene setting conducive to focused, goal-oriented work.
Approximately two thirds of the conferences that take place at Bellagio are organized by external institutions. The Center has a strong interest in proposals that align with The Rockefeller Foundation’s efforts to promote the well-being of humanity, particularly through issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world. These issues include but are not limited to health, economic opportunity, urban resilience, as well as food and agriculture.
