The Broker

Far too much knowledge that could help solve today’s challenges remains unused. At The Broker we are working to make sure that this knowledge becomes available to you and contributes to inclusive, sustainable and evidence-based policy making. As pioneering knowledge brokers since 2007, we have worked with a great variety of government bodies, NGOs, universities and think tanks to jointly connect, arrange and synthesize available knowledge. Our professional team has access to a vast network of experts and is here to make sure that relevant knowledge reaches the right people in the right form. At The Broker we have years of experience in making knowledge work for policy. During this time we have built an extensive international network of professionals working in and on international sustainable development that we can rely on. We make it our business to know whose expertise and experience can provide solutions for policymakers, civil society organizations, and the private sector. Our services are tailor-made and include arranging (online) consultations and expert meetings; developing knowledge platforms; conducting knowledge mapping; preparing synthesis reports and journalistic reporting; and facilitating research uptake. They range from short-term projects that are completed in a week to multi-annual programmes.
