Welcome to the Global Digital Foundation


As digital innovation forces traditional sectors to adapt, so policymaking that hopes to respond must take on its stronger characteristics. These are speed, flexibility, and the use of networks to focus the knowledge and experience of many minds onto complex problems. Public policy must become multi-disciplinary, more agile, more open, and more networked.

The Global Digital Foundation aims to provide these strengths, using its own network to support an evidence-based and problem-solving response to the policy needs of a digitising society.The Global Digital Foundation is a platform for dialogue between policymakers, stakeholders and scholars in support of evidence-based policy for the digital society. It is also a source of briefings for all who have a personal or professional interest in policy that affects the development and use of digital technology.
