Out of Crisis


Innovating Out of Crisis is a joint initiative developed by the GFCC and its member the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) to accelerate learning from past crises and boost resilience in local communities, global businesses, and governments worldwide.

Crises hold unique conditions that allow innovators to think and move faster and create rapid and impactful change.

Understanding the mechanisms that have helped humanity adapt and recover in periods of hardship, we can better prepare our societies for the future. 

Join our first online session: Learning to Navigate Crisis

Times of crisis present a unique opportunity for societies to find new solutions and innovate. From a business perspective, drawing lessons from past crises can facilitate the design of future strategies and management solutions, helping to build business resilience.


From the academic and policy perspectives, past crises can provide insights for creating early warning systems, mitigation and response strategies, and even contribute to developing new institutions and social structures. Click here to register.
