About the GTI

The Geneva Tsinghua Initiative provides innovative education programs that address in a practical, hands-on way the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The different programs involve students and professionals who spend part of their time in Geneva, working directly with the International Organizations there, and part in Beijing and Shenzhen, two of China’s most dynamic and entrepreneurial environments.


The GTI nurtures  innovators who want to solve major societal challenges based on the SDGs.


In the GTI, University of Geneva and Tsinghua University are connecting International Geneva with Entrepreneurial China.


The GTI attracts talent from around the globe to  work on interdisciplinary challenges, mentored by experts from IOs.
