Global Access Partners is an independent non-profit institute for active policy that initiates strategic debate on the most pressing social, economic and structural issues facing Australia and the world today.
GAP acts as a catalyst for policy implementation and new economic opportunities.

Through our pioneering Second Track programme, we foster links between community, government and business and promote innovative, cross-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving. Our alumni network comprises over 4,000 members.
We run multidisciplinary taskforces, forums, workshops, consultative committees, research and feasibility studies, online collaboration, executive consultancy, joint ventures and business missions, both in Australia and internationally.
For every project, GAP contributes one third of the budget and raises two thirds in sponsorship.
More than 1,000 people are actively engaged in various GAP projects at any one time, and over 120 sponsors fund various GAP projects.
We work with federal and state governments, major corporate enterprises, peak industry and community bodies, universities and research institutes.
