Pictet Foundation for Development
Ivan Pictet created the Pictet Foundation for Development with a capital of 25 million Swiss francs to support the creation of a space to present International Geneva and fund the establishment of the Graduate Institute’s Centre for Finance and Development and its three chairs (held by Professors Ugo Panizza, Yi Huang and Lore Vandewalle).
The Centre for Finance and Development aims to consolidate the Institute’s overlapping expertise in international finance, development economics and financial history and to raise awareness of this promising field.
Pierre du Bois Foundation for Contemporary History
The Pierre du Bois Foundation encourages and funds research into contemporary history, offering study scholarships and providing grants for research and publications. The annual Pierre du Bois Prize is awarded for the best thesis in international history defended at the Institute. Since 2018, the Foundation and the Institute have co-funded the Pierre du Bois Chair on Europe and the World, held by Professor Michael Goebel.
The Foundation was created to honour the memory of Pierre du Bois, former professor at the Graduate Institute, who passed away in June 2007.
Paul and Thomas Guggenheim Foundations
The Paul Guggenheim Foundation awards a prize to a first-time author in the field of international public law who has produced important, high-quality work.
The Thomas Guggenheim Foundation supports the history of economic thought by organising a biennial international symposium and awarding a prize recognising an exceptional piece of work, or body of work, in this field.
The International Center for Monetary and Banking Studies (ICMB)
The International Center for Monetary and Banking Studies aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas, information and research in the fields of international money, banking and finance. Its distinguishing feature is to bring together leaders from three fields: central banks, private banks and academia.
ICMB’s main activities are organising public lectures and an annual, international conference, whose findings are published. Charles Wyplosz, honorary professor at the Institute, led the ICMB for 20 years before handing over its leadership in 2018 to Professor Ugo Panizza.
