Organised by On Think Tanks
Event type Conference
Location Online

Welcome to the OTT Conference 2021, co-hosted by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).

This year, the conference theme is think tanks and change.

Last year we hosted our first online conference, which we split into three online events. We welcomed hundreds of thinktankers, think tank scholars, funders and policymakers from around the world. You can read more about the 2020 events (and watch the recordings) here.

Throughout the conference

During the online event, there will be several spaces open for participants to engage. These include:

  • Booths for partners to showcase recent work or projects
  • A networking space that randomly connects participants to each other – why not make new friends?
  • ‘Coffee rooms’ for participants to meet in smaller groups and discuss an issue of common interest
  • Chat function for the whole event which will allow participants to share resources with each other – including through direct messaging
