Participation in the Sustainable Development Solutions Network is open to universities, scientific research institutes, civil society organizations, technology companies, science-oriented foundations, and other institutions that have deep expertise in one or more areas related to sustainable development, and who commit a substantial amount of their own technical and research work towards finding and/or implementing solutions for sustainable development.

In collaboration with Boğaziçi University, the Turkey Network was launched in the summer of 2014. There was a significant interest from various universities, companies, civil society organizations, and government. The network is ensured to be multi-vocal and diverse in expertise and representation. The members gather periodically, assess the interest of decision-makers and plan the next steps of action.
