In 2017, the University of Geneva, in partnership with a number of key philanthropic foundations with an international reach, established the Geneva Centre for Philanthropy of the University of Geneva (GCP) recognizing the role of the city as one of the most important global philanthropy hubs.
Given the multidisciplinary nature of philanthropy, the Centre directly involves - and interacts with - the University`s various faculties to conduct global research and teaching in this field, and to transfer knowledge to practitioners and the general public.
The GCP has defined 5 priority topics:
- Taxation and Philanthropy,
- Social entrepreneurship and Hybrid entities,
- Why do people give?
- Foundation governance
- AI and philanthropy
