The Stanford Global Projects Center is located at the Yang & Yamazaki Energy & Environment (Y2E2) building at Stanford University. We research new ways to finance, develop, and invest in critical infrastructure worldwide.

This past April (of 2020), GPC's Executive Ashby Monk, Ph.D and Research Engineer Dane Rook, Ph.D released their book THE TECHNOLOGICAL INVESTOR: INNOVATION THROUGH REORIENTATION. Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt stated that it is "a detailed, cogent road map for organizations such as pension funds to harness technology and truly invest for the long-term."

In March 2019, Governor Newsom spoke at GPC's Opportunity Zone Investment Summit.
