Global Go To Think Tank Index | January 2014

Laura EadieCPD Sustainable Economy program achieves international ‘gold standard’ ranking.

The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the University of Pennsylvania has released its Global Go-To Think Tank Index for 2013. Over 1,950 scholars, public and private donors, policy makers, and journalists ranked 6,826 think tanks from around the world, highlighting their important role for governments and civil societies.


Led by research director Laura Eadie CPD’s Sustainable Economy research program was ranked 34th among the ‘Best Transdisciplinary Research Program at a Think Tank’, and is the first Australian organisation to feature in this new category.

“The Index has become the gold standard for think tanks around the world and is widely cited by governments, donors, journals and policymakers as the foremost profile and performance of think tanks in every region of the world. To complement this global expansion, regional events took place in over 30 global cities to announce the report, which was translated into 13 languages including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.”
