Knowledge, Research & Innovation

A Smart Way to Help Make a Better World

Driven by founder Chuck Feeney’s strong and passionate belief in how investments in higher education and research ripple through all levels of society, Atlantic made both key grantmaking priorities over the years.

Our work focused on helping produce the best and brightest minds, create new knowledge and make breakthrough discoveries in fields such as science and medicine. The payoff has been stronger economies, scientific progress and improved health care, especially for disadvantaged and vulnerable people.

Where in the World We’ve Supported This Work

Atlantic’s commitment to strengthening higher education and supporting the development of new knowledge led to investments in Australia, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, the United States and Viet Nam.
