The Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies at Stanford University will launch the university-wide "Global Development and Poverty Initiative", which makes grants available to Stanford faculty and other researchers across the university who take a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to combating poverty. "The overarching goal is to change people's lives and to build Stanford's capacity to play a role in that crucial effort," said Stanford University President John Hennessy.
