International Advisory Panel

An international panel of experts discuss Sitra’s strategy and promote our work out in the world.

What is it about?

Serious problems do not stop at national borders. To tackle shared problems, close dialogue must be held in international arenas. In addition to Sitra’s specialists co-operating closely with international partners, Sitra’s international advisory panel will challenge Sitra’s vision and strategy, and help us in our theme and project work.

As an independent body, the advisory panel will offer its views on Sitra’s strategic choices. It is also hoped that the panel will give support and further impetus to Sitra’s activities in international arenas.

  • Ravi Gurumurthy – Chief Executive Officer, Nesta
  • Rainer Kattel – Deputy Director, Professor of Innovation and Public Governance, University College London
  • Martina Larkin – Head of the Regional Agenda, Europe and Eurasia, Member of the Executive Committee, World Economic Forum

What is happening now?
