THE NEW INSTITUTE is a mission-driven Institute of Advanced Study and a platform for change.

At THE NEW INSTITUTE, we strive to develop powerful visions to fundamentally reshape society and practical solutions to turn those visions into a reality.

We will work in strategic partnerships with a variety of institutional and individual stakeholders – changemakers who share a common set of values and objectives. We will bring together a community of globally concerned thinkers and practitioners from academia, the arts, activism, media, business, and politics. Care, courage, creativity and commitment are our core values that guide our vision and mission.

Our home is the Warburg Ensemble, a group of nine classical townhouses, located in central Hamburg. It is a place that fosters imagination and provides a unique set of conditions that allow for the rethinking of conventional approaches and commonly held beliefs. To drive our message of change, we reach out to the wider public through events and a strong media presence.

Opening in 2022, the Warburg Ensemble will host up to 35 fellows. It will serve as a campus for a diverse community of innovative researchers and agents of change from around the globe to inspire and take action.

Hamburg is our home.
The world is our habitat.
The future is our concern.
