Why Support CIFAR

For over 30 years, CIFAR has brought together many of the world’s most brilliant scientists and visionary thinkers, including a number of Nobel Laureates. We have changed the understanding of how children develop, how the earth has evolved, how machines can learn, and much more. And we continue to seek answers to some of the most pressing questions facing the world.

CIFAR’s fundamental belief is that collaborative networks of researchers are greater than the sum of their parts. When leading thinkers work together in sustained, collaborative networks they have greater potential to generate insights that lead to major scientific breakthroughs and transformative knowledge. We also believe in the transformative power of multidisciplinarity and the necessity of approaching questions from many perspectives. We believe that, despite the interconnectedness of today’s global community through technology, there is no substitute for the intensity of sharing and debating ideas face to face.

Your gift allows researchers from around the world to meet face to face to explore truly new and disruptive ideas. It supports discovery that takes time and carries a degree of uncertainty, yet has potential for high-impact, world-changing outcomes.
