Breakthrough Institute, Third Way Receive Global Accelerator Award for Joint Report
The Breakthrough Institute and Third Way are proud to be recognized by the Health Strategy Innovation Cell and Longwoods Publishing with a Global Accelerator Award for their joint report, Jumpstarting a Clean Energy Revolution with a National Institutes of Energy, released last week.
This honor is given to "organizations or people who have helped propel into action an idea that holds the promise of dramatically improving..human health anywhere in the world," including, "the promotion of clean energy initiatives, of the sort imagined by the joint proposal from the Breakthrough Institute and the Third Way."
The award-winning report - which proposes the creation of a National Institutes of Energy (NIE) based on the National Institutes of Health, with goal of funding developments in clean, cheap energy - was selected by a systematic research methodology that gauges what people around the world think is valuable via "buzz" generated on the internet.
The Health Strategy Innovation Cell is a health policy think tank based in Toronto whose work has been cited in the Economist and BusinessWeek. Longwoods Publishing is a highly respected publisher of academic journals in healthcare policy and global health.
