As one of the initiative's strategic partners, the Max Schmidheiny Foundation supports the further development of the Global Trade Alert, the most comprehensive information platform world-wide for monitoring policy developments which affect international commerce.
The Global Trade Alert, led by Professor Simon Evenett, University of St. Gallen, monitors policy developments which affect international commerce. Since its launch in 2009, independent researchers around the globe have gathered more than 8’500 concise reports on trade-, investment or migration-related state interventions for more than 100 countries. Its comprehensive and timely reporting established the Global Trade Alert as an internationally recognised source for academic researchers, policy makers and leading media publications alike.
As a strategic partner of the Global Trade Alert, the Max Schmidheiny Foundation currently enables the consolidation and further development of the platform in various areas, such as the development of a Big Data application that will provide the key research infrastructure to substantially expand the publicly available data on government policy interventions towards foreign commerce.
