Science Philanthropy Accelerator for Research and Collaboration

Collaborations for Impact

Effective science needs strategic funding, collaboration from multiple fields, and expertise across many scientific discovery stages. However, competing priorities, concerns about risk, limited funding streams, and siloed fields have made the kinds of breakthroughs needed to benefit human health exceptionally challenging to achieve. 

MI Philanthropy SPARC uses the depth and diversity of the Milken Institute network to connect funders with thought leaders, people with lived experience, and other stakeholders to engage with each other and collaborate to tackle complex issues. These gatherings, many of which take place during flagship Milken Institute convenings, help build trust among peers and potential partners because they are centered on sharing experiences and learning from each other. The trust built during these gatherings fosters collaboration, which makes it possible to deploy resources efficiently and achieve maximum impact.
