About GTAP: GTAP Consortium

Founded in 1992, the Global Trade Analysis Project, a network of researchers and policy-makers analyzing international policy issues, is coordinated by the Center for Global Trade Analysis in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University. Guidance and base-level support for the project is provided by the GTAP Consortium, which unites members from government agencies, international institutions, the private sector and academia. Members of the GTAP Consortium are represented on the GTAP Advisory Board which advises the Center on matters of policy, research and funding. The GTAP Consortium currently consists of 32 agency members and 3 members at large.

Consortium Member Responsibilities
The initial responsibility is to make a two-year minimum commitment to provide annual funding (currently USD $20,435/year) in the form of base-level support for GTAP. These funds are used to help fund core GTAP staff at Purdue University. The second responsibility consortium members are expected to take on is an active interest in GTAP and promote its responsible use in economic analysis. Finally, members are also expected to help keep GTAP on-track so that it is well-placed to contribute to public debate on issues of global trade analysis.
