Inclusive research

Scientists in developing countries, early career researchers, policymakers and the public are all looking for ways to build their skills in the world of research — to be better equipped to tackle global challenges and to contribute to the scientific conversation. It is essential to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”: Elsevier partners with organizations, governments and research institutions on mentoring programs, access initiatives, competitions and dialogue on the need for evidence in science and society.

Since 2006, the Elsevier Foundation provides over $1 million USD a year in grants to knowledge-centered institutions around the world, which address the UN SDGs through tech-enabled innovations in inclusive health and research.


Inclusive health

Information technology can significantly advance the delivery of healthcare in vulnerable communities. Our partnerships support organizations working to improve health outcomes in underserved communities through the innovative use of health information.


Inclusive research

The future of science requires a robust and diverse workforce drawn from all corners of society. Our partnerships advance women in science, encourage underserved youth to choose STEM careers, and widen access to academic knowledge for scientists in developing countries.


As a unique public-private partnership between UN agencies, universities, and publishers, Research4Life reduces the knowledge gap with free and low cost access to critical scientific research. It aims improve teaching, research and policy-making in health, agriculture, the environment and other life, physical and social sciences. Elsevier is a proud founding partner of Research4Life.
