We provide NGOs and governments with diverse and actionable academic wisdom to amplify their social impact across projects and policy

Navigating academic research is overwhelming

Sifting through research demands valuable time
Critical insights are often buried in dense academic texts
Frequently locked behind costly paywalls
Many diverse perspectives are silenced by outdated peer-review processes and colonial ideas
Applying academic ideas to the real world is challenging
Complexity hinders innovation, limits inclusivity, and restricts understanding

Acume unlocks knowledge, empowers change

How we change this

We connect knowledge to action, empowering academics and changemakers

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them"

- Albert Einstein

- Bhikhu Parekh

"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress in every society"

- Kofi Annan
