A delegation of Princeton faculty members — led by President Christopher L. Eisgruber and including the University’s 2015 and 2016 Nobel laureates — took part in and led discussions on major global issues at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum that concluded Friday, Jan. 20, in Davos, Switzerland.

Each year, the meeting brings together leaders, scholars and practitioners from the public and private sectors to seek solutions to a broad range of world problems. Topics the Princeton faculty addressed included climate change, income inequality and public health, strengthening democracy, and technological innovation. Eisgruber participated in meetings of university leaders from around the world and hosted a “Princeton in Davos” reception for alumni, faculty, media and other conference attendees.
