Convergent Research

Convergent Research is an incubator within the Schmidt Futures Network that aims to help fill a structural gap in today’s R&D system by enabling research that requires unusual levels of scale and coordination yet is not rapidly monetizable by industry. Convergent Research applies scientific roadmapping to systematically identify high-leverage research opportunities in this category, ultimately defining and launching these projects as Focused Research Organizations (FROs).
