ICC Research Foundation

The ICC Research Foundation reinforces ICC’s role of providing global intellectual leadership on public policy issues of major concern to business and other stakeholders in all parts of the world.

Established in 2009, the Foundation supports research that provides useful data, analysis and policy options. Such information supplies ICC members with useful and credible materials that can be used to address global issues from international trade and trade finance to employment and climate change.

The Foundation commissions independent research by prominent academic institutions, research groups and independent experts. As well as contributing to public debate on how a multilateral approach to globalization can enhance employment, sustainable growth and the market economy, research results also illustrate how these elements together help ensure world peace and prosperity.

Privately funded, the Foundation is registered in the UK with the status of a charitable organization.
