Partnerships for the Goals

In line with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Goals, Elsevier strongly believes that a “successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society”. It is only through inclusive partnerships that sustainable development can be achieved. It is for this reason that our partnerships aim at enhancing international support for implementing the SDGs through North-South, South-South and triangular cooperation.



This partnership is driven by the Elsevier Foundation

Nonprofits don’t always realize the power of the data they have and how it can be tapped to deliver powerful insights into their goals. Datakind is an organization working with both data scientists and social sector experts to address some of the world’s biggest challenges. The Elsevier Foundation is supporting Datakind’s DataDives: a weekend of data crunching matching scientists with nonprofits.

Next Einstein Forum


Elsevier and the Next Einstein Forum have a long-standing collaboration addressing the challenges of researchers in Africa. Together, the Next Einstein Forum (NEF) and Elsevier are bringing state-of-the-art technology and processes to bear on these challenges, creating a modern open access journal to accelerate capacity-building efforts across Africa. We collaborate on a biannual basis to the success of the NEF Global Gathering in Africa, the largest science and innovation gathering on the African continent.

At NEF 2018 we launched Scientific African , a peer reviewed, open access, inter- and multidisciplinary scientific journal - with the aim to increase visibility for African researchers and provides a platform to share their research with the global community.
