Tällberg SNF Fellows

The Board of the Tällberg Foundation has established the Tällberg/Stavros Niarchos Foundation (or Tällberg/SNF Fellows), a community of global leaders who are committed to exploring the challenges facing humanity and then imagining creative solutions that reach across boundaries and borders.

Tällberg/SNF Fellows

They are a select group of individuals from around the world whose work, accomplishments and prospects embody the kind of leadership needed in the 21st century. The underlying idea is that our network can help these leaders accomplish even more by sharing experiences, resources and advice.
