Demonstrating Georgia Tech’s renewed commitment to the relationship of technology to society and the changing needs of the 21st century, the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) forms a new and dynamic union between business, government, and the academic community. In a world where all nations are quickly becoming neighbors, the Center encourages the use of technology to address major foreign policy issues affecting relations among states and non-governmental organizations.
The center is dedicated to the concept that well-conceived policy advice ensures that technology services society. Using innovative interdisciplinary approaches that pull together the unique talents of the Georgia Tech research and broader academic community, the center provides timely answers to sponsors in the public and business sectors who have questions regarding investment, risk, development, and defense matters.
The active research agenda integrates specialists from Georgia Tech’s fields of applied technology and science with leading figures in the public policy arena. Seminars, workshops, conferences, and in-house publications are merged with national and international research fellow programs to provide meaningful contacts for an enhanced understanding of future opportunities and challenges to both corporate and government planners.
