The Loomis Innovation Council is a forum for America’s technology leaders and policymakers to identify common values, share expertise, develop solutions, and consider the future of technology policy.


The Stimson Center operates at the leading edge of  transnational policy challenges, tackling the global problems facing both policymakers and technology leaders. Like no other time in history, private companies are empowering billions around the world, bringing positive change and presenting new problems that conventional approaches to international policy are ill-suited to solve. The Loomis Innovation Council is the premier venue to address these international technology policy challenges, uniting Stimson’s global network  with practical solutions from the technology sector.


Who was Alfred Loomis?

Individual members of the Council have access to a dynamic network of tech and policy experts and the opportunity to apply their specialized expertise to real-world policy challenges. They also contribute to conversations on the future of technology policy.


Corporate members benefit from access from closed Council meetings, the Loomis network, and tailored briefings by Council members and  Stimson experts. Recognition for contributions will be included in all literature, including on Stimson’s website and annual report. The Council will host periodic public events where supporters will be acknowledged.

Alfred Lee Loomis, a Wall Street investor turned inventor, was the first cousin of Henry L. Stimson. After making a personal fortune before the stock market crashed in 1929, Loomis funded a private lab that brought together some of the most accomplished scientists of the 1940s. Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, Niels Bohr, and Enrico Fermi supported an effort that is credited with helping change the course of the Second World War and of humanity. The Loomis Council captures Loomis’ fervor for problem-solving, his maverick ability to operate beyond existing systems, and his commitment to advancing a better vision of tomorrow.
